Detail:

What are child care deserts? How do we recognize them and what communities do they impact? Through data-driven analysis, the scope of child care undersupply is coming into focus. Participants will hear findings from two research organizations that are charting the child care desert landscape. This workshop will feature an interactive demonstration, how-to tips, strategies for using desert maps to drive advocacy, and a discussion about child care in Latino communities—which are frequently child care deserts.
