Child Care InforaphicTax Day can bring a lot of emotions.  Ahead of tomorrow, people across the country are in the home stretch of filing taxes.  Myself included -- I have  date with my computer tonight to turn in my taxes!

With the cost of child care exceeding the tuition of colleges in most states, the current tax credits aren't enough to help families thrive. Imagine if Tax Day provided much needed relief for the cost of child care?

The National Women’s Law Center and MomsRising invite you this Monday, April 14th at 11am PT/2pm ET for a Facebook chat where we'll discuss child care and taxes ahead of Tax Day. We’ll dive into  the lowdown on why the Child and Dependent Care Tax Credit isn’t enough and how the Child CARE Act and other efforts in Washington could help families across the country. Join in and share your resources, ideas and questions by joining the comment thread on the MomsRising Facebook page ( ).

Facebook is a great way to raise awareness about important issues, share resources, and increase your social media following.  We hope you’ll join us!  Never joined a Facebook chat before? It's easy -- ahead of the chat make sure you like MomsRising (; at the time of the chat, go to the MomsRising Facebook page and click on the status that welcomes people to the chat; all comments under that status will comprise the Facebook chat.

Please also consider inviting your friends and family to participate. Here are a few model Facebook posts and tweets to get involved:
