Advocacy Day

Marillac St. Vincent Family Services relies on state and local government to fund our early childhood education programs. In light of the economic recession, early childhood education programs and child care assistance are constantly threatened with devastating funding cuts. 

On Monday, May 13, 2013, Marillac Social Center and its Early Childhood Education program participated in the Illinois Action for Children statewide Day of Action.  In celebration of Mother's Day, Illinois Action for Children organized the day to honor working mothers and caregivers in the quest for high-quality, affordable child care and early education programs in the state of Illinois.

Children in the Early Childhood Education program created flowers and bouquets to promote the importance of programs like Marillac and to explain what Marillac means to them. The children presented the bouquets to 27th Ward Alderman Walter Burnett and State Representative Derrick Smith, when they visited Marillac Social Center on May 13th.

You can take action by contacting your local legislator and asking them to protect early childhood programs, giving vulnerable children access to high-quality child care and education. To find your elected official, please click here.
