Take Action

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

Here are some actions you can take today:

Congress: Don’t let kids lose out on early education now!

Young children & their families deserve reliable, quality child care that lets parents work and puts young children on track for success in school and in life. With relief funds long gone, our nation’s child care system is under massive strain. The good news: There is a strong movement in Congress to provide new investments to sustain the child care sector for the long haul.

Make sure your community can vote

Are you fired up to make sure citizens have the information they need in hand to successfully cast their ballot? If so, You Can Vote’s Voting Rights Champions Program is designed to help nonprofits educate and empower voters! As a Champion, you’ll receive non-partisan materials to display and/or distribute at your locations.

Health care for every parent and caregiver

Legislative leaders have convened a new bipartisan committee in 2022 to discuss whether to expand Medicaid in North Carolina. Do you know what it’s like to live without the health coverage you need?

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: 

Health Care Can't Wait

Families Can't Wait for Care
