LEWISTON, Idaho -- A group of parents and children in Lewiston joined a nationwide effort Wednesday to protest proposed cuts to early childhood education.
"I cannot have this program cut," said Rebecca Cordoba, a 26-year-old mother of two. "It's done so much for me and my family. I'll do whatever it takes."
Standing near the office of U.S. Rep. Raul Labrador, R-Idaho, on Main Street, they waved signs and chanted about the importance of Head Start. Labrador was in the Boise area, but the group drew the attention of motorists and downtown pedestrians.
