Right now, the cost of childcare in the District of Columbia is higher than anywhere else in the entire country. Yes, you read that right! Let’s work together to change that!
MomsRising is partnering with the Universal Childcare Now Coalition to make sure that D.C. leaders understand the early learning needs, including pre-k and childcare, of D.C. families. We'll also be decorating baby bib with messages about the need for affordable childcare and pre-k to be delivered to City Council Members. So let’s make it a playdate! Tell us what you think in person — and bring your children. We’ll have food, juice boxes, kid-friendly space, and lots to talk about.
There are multiple dates for this event:
- August 26th, 10:30 am - 12:00 pm, Anacostia Library
- September 2nd, 10:30 am - 12:00 pm, Shaw Library

DC Public Library - Woodridge Branch has graciously offered to host our SMD meeting this month. Hope you will be able to join us. Agenda to be announced at a later date.
Beginning October 1, 2017 the DC Office of Human Rights will be enforcing two new important laws that will impact businesses and housing providers across the District: The Fair Criminal Record Screening for Housing Act of 2016 and the Fair Credit in Employment Amendment Act of 2016. Both laws aim create more opportunities within the District for individuals who often are faced with significant barriers to housing and employment due to their credit history or criminal background. Join us for an in-depth discussion on requirements for landlords and employers under these and how it will impact your business. This training is intended for DC employers, employment agencies, labor organizations, housing providers, leasing managers, realtors, rental managers, and landlords.
