The marbled halls of Congress see a lot of lobbyists in pin stripes. You know what they haven’t seen?

A giant family relay race packed with kids and aimed straight for the Capitol, all to support affordable, high quality early learning and childcare!

Will you help fill the U.S. Capitol with moms and kids & send an urgent message to Congress to invest in early learning? We can’t cross that finish line without you. 

> Chip in $15 or more to help get more moms and kids to the Capitol and set up our littlest learners for success from start to finish!

While Congress races to finish its national budget this September, we’ll be racing around THEM to fight for early learning and childcare funding. On September 17th, moms, dads, children, as well as childcare and early learning supporters of all ages will crawl, toddle, walk, and run a relay race to remind Congress to be Miles Ahead for Early Learning (including preschool and childcare) and invest in our littlest learners. 

There is no more powerful voice than moms and kids. That's why we need your help now to get moms, dads, and kids TO THE RELAY, sharing their stories, and delivering a powerful call to action straight to Congress.

When moms rise, we all rise. Help us keep up the momentum and support today:

When moms, dads, kids, and early learning supporters fill the Capitol in person, carrying the stories and voices of families across the country, all of our voices are strengthened. The more people we can get to the Capitol, the louder our message, and the greater the impact we can have!

Families across the country count on our national leaders to stand up for our littlest learners and invest in early learning and childcare. This is a critical issue: Childcare costs more than college tuition in a majority of states and 70% of mothers with children are in the workforce.

It is painfully clear that our families and our economy need a boost!

What will your support mean?

Your gift will show Congress that moms mean business! Your support will send more moms, dads, grandparents, and children to the U.S. Capitol to remind Congress that kids and families are counting on them to do big things for our littlest learners.

Help us ensure we can pack the U.S. Capitol with moms and sweatband-adorned kids:
