Caring for Our Children:
An Update and Expansion of the
1988 LWVOR Study

At Convention 2021, LWV of Washington County proposed a restudy of LWVOR's 1985 Childcare Position. The current pandemic has highlighted and exacerbated childcare issues and inequities.​

The LWVOR Board adopted this completed restudy on January 23rd, 2023. Child care concerns have changed dramatically since our  1988 - Childcare In Oregon  publication. Our advocacy position has not changed. You can find a downloadable version of the restudy here. 

For more information, contact Kathleen Hersh.

**NEW!** On March 22nd, 2023, LWVOR hosted a webinar on the state of child care in Oregon! The topics include: Why affordable, quality child care is critical for Oregon; challenges and successes of childcare providers; and a report from the nascent Oregon Department of Early Learning and Childcare.
