Take Action on SB750/HB785!

Let’s make quality child care and preschool an option for more Tennessee families!

Hi!  Thanks for clicking onto this page to send a message to your legislators. This will be quick!

For the first time ever, the Tennessee General Assembly is considering investing state dollars in scholarships so more young children have the opportunity to attend high-quality childcare and preschool! And you have a special role to play – your legislator(s) will soon cast a critical vote in Finance Committee.

Simply send a short one or two sentence email asking them to vote YES on SB750/HB785 to make childcare more affordable for working families.

Here’s how you can make your voice heard…

In that box to the right is a message you need to delete before writing your own! That’s because we want you to personalize your message. In fact we’ve heard directly from legislators that they ignore emails if they are all the same

Start by replacing the subject line with your name and request:  example: Sally Jones requests you vote YES on SB750/HB785
