Council for a Strong America Discusses American Families Plan on Fox News
Vice President of Federal Policy & Strategic Alliances, Jenny Wing Harper, appeared on Fox News to break down the early childhood provisions in the American Families Plan
Council for a Strong America Vice President of Federal Policy & Strategic Alliances, Jenny Wing Harper, appeared on Fox News on Saturday, May 1, 2021, to discuss President Biden’s American Families Plan and the importance of early childhood investments to our economy.
The ambitious plan proposes historic funding for the early childhood education and child care sectors. Council for a Strong America is urging lawmakers to come together and forge bipartisan solutions to address the child care crisis, and to make investments that will help everyone in America’s next generation succeed.
This conversation follows the White House’s release of “The American Families Plan” which cites key findings from the 2019 ReadyNation report, “Want to Grow the Economy? Fix the Child Care Crisis.” Over the past two years, numerous policymakers and advocates alike have pointed to the report’s findings as a key rationale for supporting investments in child care that can mitigate the infant-and-toddler child care crisis affecting working parents and their children across the country.
