We need YOU to call City leaders in charge of the budget and tell them to save child care and after-school programs – programs that allow parents to keep their jobs while their children get the educational opportunities they need to succeed.

Campaign for Children Call In Day – Instructions

On Wednesday April 4th between 9am and 4pm, parents, providers and concerned New Yorkers will take action by calling City leaders and letting them know we are paying attention. 

Call (888)-279-3491 on Wednesday, April 4th to let our City leaders know that child care and after-school must be saved!

Use this script as a guide for your call (and please be polite):

Hi, my name's ________. I'm calling to urge you to save child care and after-school programs.

With the newest budgets cuts, more than 47,000 NYC children are at risk of losing the educational opportunities that pave the way for success. Families that rely on subsidized child care and after-school work hard and play by the rules. Without these programs, many working family members will be unable to keep their jobs and provide for their households, or will be forced to make potentially unsafe arrangements for their children. It is morally wrong to balance the city budget on the backs of children and hard-working families.  We’re counting on YOU to restore the funding to save child care and after-school programs. Thank you.

Calls to the number above will be automatically connected to one of the City leaders in charge of the budget.  If no one answers, leave a voicemail. Despite what message you get from their office, please be assured that these are the key people in making budget decisions.
