Advocacy Update 

Ask Your Louisiana Senators to Restore the 

$51 million budget cut for early childhood education!

CCAL call to action flyer.pdf

The time to call is now! The Senate Finance Committee will soon be voting on House Bill 1, the State’s operating Budget.

Please call your state senator at 225 342-2040 or use this link to identify your state senator:

The message is clear:

Please RESTORE the $51 million budget cut for Early Childhood Education for Louisiana Families.

This money would pay for essential slots in high quality childcare centers so that working moms and dads can continue to go to work or complete their college education so that our children can be prepared for kindergarten.  This funding saves 16,000 essential seats!

NOTE:  After you place your call, please text Cindy @ 225 933 5435 and let me know that you made the call.

List your name, and what senator(s) you left a message for so I can keep track.   THANKS!
