Tell Governor Gavin Newsom: CA Child Care Providers Deserve a Seat At the Table

Sign the Petition

California child care providers work hard to give kids the high-quality care they need and deserve. That’s why we’re joining providers to ask Governor Gavin Newsom to sign the Building a Better Early Care and Education System Act (AB378) into law! 

AB378 will give child care providers a strong union and a seat at the table to negotiate better pay, win benefits, improve training, expand access to affordable child care and strengthen our communities. 

Family child care providers literally hold the future of our communities in our hands – but too many providers are struggling to afford basic necessities for their own families. What’s more, families across California are facing a crisis in child care. Over one million children can’t access early education. Working parents can’t afford quality care. That’s not right. No matter race, zip code, or religion, ALL children deserve to have a great start in life and to reach their full potential.

PETITION: Dear Governor Newsom, Please sign AB378 and prioritize a strong union, better pay, benefits and training for child care providers and more access to high-quality care for California’s children! Sincerely,
