August Recess Materials
During the August Congressional recess, Members of Congress will likely send some time on vacation. However, they will also use some of this period as a district/state work period. Now is a great time to reach out to your Members of Congress and request a meeting to discuss the importance of child care in your community – both as a work support for parents and an investment in quality settings for children to promote school readiness.
It’s best to email your meeting request letter (and then follow up with a phone call a few days later):
To find the email for your Members of Congress, click here. Type in your zip code and then click on the Member’s web site, click on “contact member” and submit a scheduling request through the web form.
Think about inviting your Members of Congress to see your program. A meeting is a great, but an onsite visit is an even better visual! Come see quality care in action…
