Waiting for Change

In 2016 Parent Voices, Child Care Law Center, and the CA Child Care Resource & Referral Network conducted a study of families on the waiting list, a population that is often ignored and whose stories are hidden. We conducted 6 focus groups and a parent survey with 125 respondents. Thanks to the Economic Development and Justice Fund Donor Circle for supporting this work.

Waiting to be seen. Demanding to be heard.

Parent Voices was proud to participate in the CA Assembly Blue Ribbon Commission on Early Childhood Education. Mary Ignatius, Parent Voices Statewide Organizer served as a Community Commissioner on the BRC. We secured funding through First 5 LA to partner with Social Policy Research Associates to conduct parent focus groups with 40 parents. The recommendations are embedded in the full [BRC draft report]( Draft Sections 3.11.19.pdf).

The recommendations that came from parents can be found in this report: Waiting to be seen. Demanding to be heard. (Fall 2018)
