The ECE Coalition envisions child care and early childhood education systems that serve and meet the diverse needs of all children, families, and ECE professionals, especially Black, Latinx, Indigenous people, and others harmed by systemic racism and additional injustices. These systems will justly compensate all who serve children and families, and will integrate culturally, developmentally and linguistically relevant, responsive, and affirming high-quality care and education for children, inclusive of children with disabilities.


The Coalition advocates for state budget investments and policies that aim to promote equity by serving the highest-need children first. We hold ourselves accountable for ensuring the investments, policies, and research we advance are anti-racist, and will liberate all children and families. To do this, the Coalition follows and uplifts the expertise and stories of families and ECE professionals.

Child Care Providers United (CCPU) is a partnership of SEIU and UDW.
