Angela and Patrice: A Conversation on the Need for Affordable Child Care

Angela and her daughter Patrice discuss the effects of the lack of quality, affordable child care on their family as Patrice raises two young daughters.

Child care is a multigenerational issue that especially affects women who parent. Many of the financial and job sacrifices mothers had to make for their children decades ago are still necessary today.

Watch Angela and her daughter Patrice discuss how a lack of sustained investment in quality, affordable child care affects their family.
