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.
