The Childcare Crisis in NY | Western NY and Fingerlakes Region
New York's child care industry is in a state of crisis — but with your input we can build a stable child care system that every New Yorker has access to.

The Office of Senator Jabari Brisport invites all Western NY & Fingerlakes region parents & child care providers to join a discussion on Zoom:

Decades of treating and funding child care as a private service rather than vital public infrastructure has left the system on the verge of collapse. Many child care centers have already been forced to close, and parents are struggling to access the child care they need. Where child care is still available, it is largely due to a dramatically underpaid workforce, overwhelmingly of women — especially women of color — who are paid wages that leave the majority in near poverty.

That's why we have organized this listening tour with an amazing group of advocates — to hear directly from child care providers and parents in our communities. We hope that you'll join so we can have a robust discussion about what it will take to solve this crisis.
