Setting Out To Meet the People Coming to Save Us (With Latoya Gayle)
We’re back for Season 3, and this year, host Gloria Riviera is setting out across the U.S. to meet the people who are fixing the child care crisis. A lot has happened since Season 2, and in this episode, Latoya Gayle from Neighborhood Villages updates us about what we’ve been missing, including President Biden’s recent executive order on child care and what it means for you. Plus, Gloria and Latoya preview some state-level legislative reforms on child care we’ll learn more about throughout the season.
