New explainer video: The childcare crisis in rural Minnesota, 2020


The year 2020 was a stress test on all our systems, especially childcare. The childcare crisis in rural Minnesota was already serious before the pandemic. During the pandemic, it was no longer possible to ignore how important access to childcare is for the average family and how stressed our childcare system is—especially in rural communities. 

Our new explainer video goes over where we’re at with childcare, how we got into this situation in the first place, and some ideas for what we’ll need to do if we’re going to get childcare back on track again.
