Several childcare providers in Indianapolis shut their doors on Monday, May 9, as part of “A Day Without Child Care: National Day of Action,” as “educators and advocates demand policymakers invest in the child care system to provide racial equity and living wages,” WFYI of Indianapolis reports. “Participants in the National Day of Action have three demands for elected officials,” the station reports. “First, they demand thriving wages for child care providers and workers. They also want an equitable child care system built on racial justice. Third, they’re asking all families have guaranteed access to affordable childcare.”
