THE POWER OF ONE / Want to Spring into Action for Child Care? The Power of One is a simple action, have one conversation – with a family member, a co-worker, a grandparent – about child care and the upcoming federal election. Ask them to carry the conversation forward with one other person. Finding affordable quality child care is often a silent struggle, let’s break the silence.
