Community Voices is the countywide child care advocacy program of Crystal Stairs, Inc., focused on strengthening parent leadership and advocacy through workshops, local and statewide advocacy events and more. Community Voices focuses on building awareness and mobilizing their campaigns by informing and educating parent and provider advocates around the Los Angeles County. They offer a safe and supportive environment for parents, or anyone who cares about children, to learn to use their voice to fight for children and create change amid the issues.
Since 2006, Community Voices has worked to create access more than 2,000 parents and caregivers, to share their concerns with state and local policymakers and other stakeholders on a variety of issues. Currently, their membership base is composed of low-income parents and child care providers focusing on increasing access to affordable, quality child care for all children, ensuring a livable wage for our child care providers, and strengthening families and communities.
