NEW: In-depth Supplement to the Essential Workers to the Essential Workers Blog Post Series


Advancement Project California launched our “Supporting the Essential Workers of the Essential Workers,” Blog Series to tell the stories of women of color serving as child care providers during the COVID-19 pandemic. 

The series uplifts their dedication to California’s children, highlights the essential role they play for our families, communities, and state, and calls on California to take bold steps to build an early learning and care system that addresses the foundations of systemic racism, racial equity, and economic justice. 

Our in-depth, supplemental Medium post highlights the root causes of racial inequity entrenched in the early design of the early learning and care system and how it will continue to play out in today’s system unless we take courageous, intentional steps to lead with racial equity and reimagine an ELC system that works for all Californians, not just the privileged few.
