Today is the day to make a difference with children and families who cannot access childcare due to lack of diapers.
I am asking that you call your Senators and Congressional Representatives to ask them to co-sponsor the “Diaper Investment and Aid to Promote Economic Recovery (“DIAPER”) Act.”Congresswoman Rosa DeLauro (D-CT) will be introducing this original piece of legislation on Thursday.
