Take Action for PA Children & Families

Children and families need you to take action this June.

Join Trying Together and local advocates on Tuesday, June 12, 2018 for a, “March on Market” and show the local community, employers, and policymakers how many of us depend upon reliable child care to maintain employment and peace-of-mind!

Do you rely on child care to attend work? You can help by:

  • Coming to Market Square in downtown Pittsburgh on June 12 between 11:45 a.m. – 1 p.m. for a large group photo at 12:15 p.m.; smaller group photos will take place on a rolling basis

Learn more about March on Market and how you can help.

Then on Tuesday, June 19, 2018, Trying Together is again inviting area advocates to contact their legislators for Action Day and remind them that we need their help to build bright futures for children.

You can help by:

415 Market Street, STE 206
Harrisburg, PA 17101

Then, on June 19:

  • Wear blue and orange; take photos of the young children and/or your program facility; post to social media; and tag your local legislator
  • Record or live stream a block tower building game/project/race from your program or household and post it with the hashtags #BuildBrightFutures and #FundChildCare
  • Call your legislators on June 19 and ask them to support our children in the next budget. Sign-up for a text message reminder.
  • Text “ECE KIDS” to 52886 to tell your legislators that we need to invest in our future
