Massachusetts Fair Share

We stand up for a Massachusetts where everyone gets a fair shot, does and pays their fair share, and plays by the same rules.

Advocates gather at statehouse to support early education funding

On May 15, Massachusetts Fair Share joined with SEIU 509 to call for increased funding to expand access to early childhood education.

Speakers included a parent who lost her early education assistance, an early education provider with open slots in her program (represented by SEIU 509), and early ed legislative leaders Sen. James Welch, and Rep. Jay Livingstone.

The event comes a day after the Massachusetts Senate proposed a significant increase in funding for early education assistance, enough to take 3,000 kids off waiting lists and into programs. However, with a wait list that is nearly 40,000 names long, more can be done to address the needs around the state.
