As part of our Policy Perspectives Speakers Series, the Budget Center hosted a special webinar briefing that looked at the significant unmet need for subsidized child care and development programs in our state. This webinar featured three experts on California’s subsidized child care system discussing the importance of child care assistance for our state’s children and families and how Governor Newsom’s budget plans to invest in these vital programs. These experts included:
- Erin Gabel, Deputy Director, External and Governmental Affairs Office, First 5 California
- Mary Ignatius, Statewide Organizer, Parent Voices
- Kristin Schumacher, Senior Policy Analyst, California Budget & Policy Center
