80% of a child's brain is formed before the age of 3. It doesn't take a grandma to realize how important it is to invest in early childhood education.

We need to do a better job supporting working families, and that includes making sure that if you're working full-time, you shouldn't have to struggle to make ends meet. Donald Trump says he doesn't think there needs to be a federal floor for the minimum wage, and even that wages are too high (seriously). That's backward. We need to raise the minimum wage, lift millions of families out of poverty, and make the economy work for everyone, not just the extremely wealthy.
Together. #NotMeUs
Right now, in many states, child care is more expensive than college tuition. Think about that for a minute. We know that college is too expensive—but for many families, child care costs even more. That puts parents in an impossible position: Either they put their kids in a not-so-great place and spend the whole day worried and distracted, or they do whatever it takes to pay for child care, even if that means taking on debt. Or they decide that they just can’t afford it, so one parent has to stay home, even though a lot of families need two incomes to get by (and staying out of the workforce for a longer period makes it harder to jump back in later on). And of course, for single-parent families, all these choices are even starker. Enough is enough. It’s time we make quality child care affordable for every family in America.
This campaign is about reach out to the millions of Americans that are struggling to get by, and telling them that they are not alone. That when we stand together, we can accomplish anything, and create a better future for this country.
I want to thank the people of West Virginia for the tremendous victory they gave us today!
Tired of the fact that the United States is the only industrialized country in the world without any form of guaranteed paid family leave? It's time to change that.
