Take Action

Together, we can achieve huge victories for North Carolina kids.

Here are some direct actions you can take today:

Preschool teacher excited about what her students are doing

Make sure NC’s early childhood system can survive COVID-19

Families rely on our early education system in order to keep working, and our state’s economy does, too. Please join us in calling on state legislators to get emergency funding to our early childhood providers.

Call on state legislators to fight COVID-19 by covering the uninsured

North Carolina is turning down billions in federal health care dollars that would expand health coverage. Many of NC’s uninsured are working on the front lines of COVID-19 – in places like child care, food service, and nursing homes. Contact your state legislators now!

Current Campaigns

Many children across our state face significant barriers that affect their wellbeing. Too many kids and families face discrimination because of their race, ethnicity, and place of birth. NC Child wants every child to have the chance to thrive.

Here are a few of the current campaigns we’re working on, together with our partners: 

2020 Census

Make Every Child Count
