When early education and care centers cannot adequately staff classrooms, it impacts everyone: Children fall behind, parents are unable to work, small businesses close and the economy suffers, write @RepPressley and @sarahsmuncey. wbur.fm/3HPV3DV

Millions of borrowers face another fiscal cliff with student loan payments set to resume on Feb. 1. @POTUS must #CancelStudentDebt to jumpstart the economy, close the racial wealth gap and lay the groundwork for a just & equitable recovery.

In order to truly #BuildBackBetter, we must invest in childcare—and that includes our childcare workers. Read my op-ed with @sarahsmuncey of @NVSBoston on why supporting our childcare *workforce* is critical to a just & equitable recovery. ⬇️

🗣“Simply “building back” to the unjust, pre-COVID status quo “normal” is not enough. We owe it to educators, to providers, and to families to finally enact meaningful change that centers the needs of the people.” - @RepPressley & @sarahsmuncey on the #earlyed crisis in Mass.

The #BuildBackBetter Act is transformative legislation that meets the moment & delivers long-overdue investments in the people. The House did its job. I’m calling on the Senate to swiftly pass this bill so @POTUS can sign it into law.

Build Back Better includes investments that are “historic and sorely needed,” says @AyannaPressley. It’s now in the hands of the Senate. She's optimistic though, “I’m confident the president will secure the votes necessary to pass this.” #Velshi ow.ly/THTI50GSN5R
