This Fight is My Fight!

What if, instead of unemployment, low wages, violence, and instability, our communities had...

  • Free, high-quality child care, available to everyone, just like public school?
  • Tens of thousands of new jobs in child care created right here in Chicago, each paying a good and livable wage?

Another future is possible...but only if we build the people power we need to win it!

Across Chicago, early childhood educators are joining together to build the people power we need to win the child care system we all deserve: free, high-quality care, guaranteed to everyone and provided by educators who are paid a fair and livable wage.

Together with our union, SEIU Healthcare, we've formed the Chicago Early Educators Association. We're working to change the balance of power in our city and our state, and to secure a brighter future for us all.
