It’s time child care providers get treated like the essential workers they are, with benefits matching the important work they do.

The administration is delaying health care and retirement benefits for child care providers who will be forced to work long past retirement age and will die sooner without access to quality health care. Tell the Governor: That’s not who we are in California!

Call Governor Newsom between 9 am and 5 pm:
1-866-584-5792 

Tell him to fund meaningful health care for all providers and get providers started in building a retirement that matches the important work they do 

Here is a sample script you can use:

“Hi, Governor Newsom. My name is _______ and I live in _____ County.

You committed to supporting family child care providers and we are calling on you to honor that commitment now.

Child care providers need your help in order to keep their doors open and to continue serving working families.

I’m urging you to fund meaningful health care for all providers and get providers started in building a retirement that matches the important work they do

Thank you.”
