In June of 2022, the Southeast Wisconsin Child Care Workforce Coalition partnered with Kenosha Area Business Alliance and Racine County Economic Development Corporation to conduct a survey aimed at better understanding the impact of child care on local employers and the workforce. The survey was inspired, in part, by Project Growth's Wisconsin Employer Perceptions of Early Care and Education statewide research, which can be found here.

Last week Gov. Tony Evers invited a small group of Kenosha leaders to a round table discussion focused on the $600M tax cut plan he recently announced. PACC Fellow Ashley Wells was among those invited to represent the work accomplished in the Parents Advocating for Child Care (PACC) Fellowship. Ashely spoke about the need for childcare incentives and the importance of parents advocating for legislation to better position families to take care of their children. Thank you, Ashley, for continuing to advocate for Kenosha County children and families!
