Goodman Center rally today supports state funding for child care 

Goodman Center child care teachers and parents are hosting a rally this afternoon in solidarity with the national Day without Child Care, according to a recent press release. This event recognizes the child care crisis currently facing Madison, along with the rest of the state and the nation. 

Raising Wisconsin estimates parents pay up to a third of their annual income for child care for two children. Goodman is asking community members — including businesses and individuals with children and without children — to reach out to their legislative representatives to show their support on including $300 million in funding to support child care in the 2023–25 state budget. 

The rally will take place at 4:30 p.m. at the Goodman Center’s Ironworks building at 149 Waubesa St.
