The Grassroots Movement for Child Care and Early Education is a movement of families, early educators, and allies coordinated by the ECE Organizing Network, a network of diverse national organizations working on child care and early education policy across the country. The need for affordable, quality child care and early education options becomes greater every year—and the COVID-19 pandemic only further exacerbated the child care crisis—revealing the importance of care and the lack of adequate public support that led to many providers being forced to close their doors.
