Thunderclap: We NEED affordable child care!

On Tuesday, April 25th, advocates from across the country will be rallying at the Capitol to make high-quality, affordable child care a national priority. Raise your voice with us by signing up for our Thunderclap.

What is a thunderclap?

It’s a tool that lets us send lots of tweets/Facebook posts at the exact moment that they’ll be most effective. We’ve scheduled this thunderclap for Tuesday, April 25th at 9:30am ET, during the Rally for Child Care in Washington, D.C. Supporters can sign up in advance at this link http://thndr.me/grVQiN and customize their tweet and Facebook post.
