When we use our racial equity lens and legal expertise to educate and advocate for change, we can offer families and providers the
tangible access and opportunity they rightfully deserve.
- Now in California, there is no cost for child care for families with low incomes. Parents asked us to help them draft the legislation to reform the child care fee policy. After three years of temporary waivers, the reform is permanent in 2023. Upwards of 150,000 families with low incomes are free from paying for child care, leaving them with an extra ~$600 a month in their pockets. With affordable child care, families can get ahead and stay ahead.
- Our innovative problem solving made way for a change in California’s home based child care zoning laws that make them uniform across the state. Our work actualized that child care rights are also a constitutional property right.
- Our aggressive and forward thinking attorneys expanded the eligibility ceiling, did away with egregious eligibility requirements and guidelines, and removed sites of onerous burdens so that families with low incomes can get and keep the child care they love for as long as they need it.
With our partners and our community, we will nurture this movement for more just and inclusive policies that allow every family to raise children with dignity. Join us!
