Dear Jessica,

Have you heard? The Senate is about to release a budget reconciliation bill that includes no investment in child care. This decision will impact families, who struggle to afford the high cost of care, and educators who need livable wages. We can't allow this to happen -- and there's still time to act!

Make your voice heard by joining fellow educators, advocates and parents in calling on Senators Blumenthal and Murphy to prioritize child care in reconciliation today. 

As we begin to reflect and plan ahead, our newsletter will be going on a summer break until September. You can follow our Facebook page to keep up with the latest policy updates, events and happenings at All Our Kin. We look forward to sharing some exciting new opportunities for the fall!

Wishing you and your family a happy and healthy summer,

The All Our Kin Team
