Our children may be returning back to school, but we're not going back to normal. This year in Illinois, families and educators are teaming up to collect our #RightToCare. We demand early childhood care families can afford, access and trust and fair pay to educators that dedicate their lives to our children.

Nuestra Visión

Hacer de Illinois un estado donde TODAS las familias y los proveedores y educadores de la primera infancia tengan los recursos que necesitan para ayudar a los niños a tener éxito.

Nuestra Misión

La Coalición es un grupo de defensores, organizaciones sin fines de lucro, proveedores de cuidado infantil y educación temprana, distritos escolares, familias y otras personas que se han unido para luchar por el bienestar de los niños más pequeños de Illinois.

  • Trabajamos juntos para asegurarnos de que TODAS las familias y los proveedores de cuidado infantil tengan los recursos que necesitan para ayudar a que los niños tengan éxito.
  • Queremos financiación adecuada, equitativa, sostenible y confiable para los servicios para niños desde el nacimiento hasta los 5 años de edad
  • Queremos asegurarnos de que todos los niños puedan acceder a una educación y cuidado de alta calidad, como elijan sus familias.
  • Queremos que los recursos se inviertan en los niños y las comunidades que más lo necesitan para eliminar las disparidades raciales, socioeconómicas y de otro tipo.

Acerca de, The Village Coalition

Nuestra Historia

2019

Our diverse coalition of families, caregivers, early educators and providers, school districts, faith-based groups, non-profit organizations, and community members launched We, the Village Coalition to build momentum for transformational change in Illinois’ early childhood care and education system.

2020

We, the Village Coalition successfully influenced the recommendations of Governor Pritzker’s Illinois Commission on Equitable Early Childhood Education and Care Funding. Our recommendation served as a roadmap for the state’s investment in young learners through a more accessible system for families.

2021

We, the Village Coalition launched Right to Care IL! This story-driven campaign, developed in collaboration with parents and service providers, effects change through public awareness actions. The campaign works to increase state and federal funding, involve parents and providers in decision-making processes, and ensure those processes are racially equitable and inclusive.
