Forum on Fixing the Child Care Crisis

A strong, affordable, high quality child care system is a key to a strong and productive economy. We invite you to join us at “Want to Grow the Economy? Fix the Child Care Crisis,” a forum co-sponsored by Connecticut Voices about how the lack of affordable child care affects both businesses and families.

Connecticut’s economic growth is one of the slowest in the country, and Governor Lamont has vowed to lead the state to an economic resurgence.  This will require public and private investment, leadership and—affordable, accessible, high quality child care.  A recently released national study points to $57 billion in lost earnings, productivity and revenue due to the lack of affordable, accessible child care.

Join us and our partners at this forum to learn about steps we can take to support parents, children, and businesses:

  • When: Tuesday, April 2, 2019, 10 a.m. to 12 p.m.
  • Where: Legislative Office Building, Room 1D, 300 Capitol Ave, Hartford
