Thousands of children could lose their childcare and after school programs

Thousands of children could lose their childcare and after school programs… where will they go?

Come to the East Harlem Children’s Aid Center – 130 East 101st St (@ Lexington) on Wednesday, May 30th at 5 pm for our Town Hall on the issue.

Find out about the Mayor’s proposed cuts to childcare and afterschool programs and get involved to stop them. The Campaign for Children will present on the impact the cuts have on our District and our city. Representatives from organizations in our community will speak out on the cuts as well.

Join the fight to protect vital youth programs which nurture our children and keep them safe after school and learn how you can connect to local actions! They Say Cutback, We Say Fight Back!!
