Univision Chicago - Latino Policy Forum Early Childhood Education Advocacy Day - 5.1.12

Just as jobs, unemployment and the economy were identified as a “top issue for vote” by 47 percent of Latino voters in a recently-released poll , more than 40 local Latino parents will travel to Springfield to voice concerns about pending cuts to the Illinois’ Child Care Assistance Program (CCAP), which currently enables 85,000 families to work. Worried about rising child care copays and cuts that may eliminate the possibility of preschool for their children, parents will meet with state legislators on May 2 in an advocacy day organized by the Latino Policy Forum.
