Take Action

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

Here are some direct actions you can take today:

Act now: A Billion-Dollar Opportunity for Early Childhood

Congress has sent North Carolina a historic $1.3 Billion to invest in our early childhood & child care programs. This is a stunning opportunity – not just to rebuild our ailing child care sector, but to ensure that thousands more of North Carolina’s toddlers are ready to succeed when they arrive in kindergarten. Make sure state legislators maximize the impact of these funds for our youngest learners!

Urge state legislators to fight childhood lead exposure

NC House members are voting soon HB 272. This is an important opportunity to reduce young children’s lead exposure – please take action with our simple email form!

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

North Carolina’s leaders have a huge opportunity to bring affordable health coverage to low-income people in our state — building back stronger from COVID-19. Contact your legislators today!

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

Families Can't Wait for Care
