Save the Date: Show your support for ERDC in 2013!

We’ve fought long and hard to preserve Employment Related Day Care for Oregon families. In tight budget years, it’s critical that we continue to remind lawmakers that ERDC is one of the best ways they can support Oregon families and strengthen our state economy.

We hope you will join us in Salem on March 27, 2013 to show your support once again for ERDC. Bring friends, coworkers, children, their grandparents, and anyone else who cares about the well-being of Oregon’s working parents and their kids!

ERDC Advocacy Day

Wednesday, March 27, 2013 from 9am - 1pm
Oregon State Capitol, 900 Court St. NE, Salem, Oregon 97301
Hearing Room 50


We will give you an update on the status of ERDC in the budget and an opportunity to talk with legislators and statewide media about the importance of the program.

We need your help!

Personal stories are critical to helping us communicate the impact of this program on families, child care providers, and businesses. If you have experience with ERDC, please help us make a difference by sharing your story with us.

If you are a child care provider, please distribute these forms among your client families and help us gather stories. And share your own!

Spread the word: Print off these flyers and hang them in daycare centers, kids clothing stores, your local grocery store, coffee shop, or library.


We’ll see you there!
