That can mean everything from stable child care assistance, job schedule predictability, ending a practice that denies cash aid to children born in poverty or improving access to paid family leave.
As organizers of the rally, parents Voices beckoned on the  California Assembly members to implement policies (implement 12 months of child care assistance and update the income guidelines to qualify for subsidized child care). which would will favor the parents as this was their cause for rallying.
“If we want to honor mothers this month, these are the policies everyone everywhere should embrace”.
