MA Head Start Association & Boston ABCD Celebrate Head Start With a Parade on May 31st

"We need to convince some folks in Washington that our children are as important as air traffic controllers and meat inspectors and that they should seriously consider rescinding this foolish sequester that is causing havoc with the lives of our most underprivileged families," John Drew, President and CEO of Action for Boston Community Development (ABCD).

Two recent articles talk about the negative impacts that the sequestration cuts are taking on Head Start programs across the nation.

To celebrate Head Start and protest the sequestration cuts, Massachusetts Head Start programs are planning a large parade on Boston Common at 10:00 am for May 31.  If you have similar events occurring, please let us know so that we can inform people across the country.
