Childcare and early childhood education is a foundational issue to build a future Bay Area that is centered on economic justice, racial equity and gender equity. Simply providing it as an option for families can be a significant boon for the economy by boosting productivity and getting more people, especially women, into the workforce. The introduction of AB 1119 at the beginning of the legislative session is just one tool that highlights the importance of available and affordable high-quality childcare for caregivers. Join the bills author, Assemblymember Wicks, and experts from the Center for the Study of Child Care Employment at UC Berkeley to learn more about the Bay Area's — and California's — childcare crisis, how we can ensure that caregivers have better pay and a better social safety net and how the state can make the structures of work support all caregivers.
