NATIONAL DIAPER NEED AWARENESS WEEK

The League of Women Voters recognizes that families need diapers for their young children and often can't afford to purchase them.

National Diaper Need Awareness Week is September 26 – October 2, 2022.  The week draws attention to the issue of diaper need in the U.S.

A signature initiative of the National Diaper Bank Network launched in 2012, the National Diaper Need Awareness Week provides individuals, organizations, communities, and elected officials the opportunity to engage in real talk and simple actions. 

By working together we can ensure that all babies have access to clean diapers and other basic necessities required for them to thrive and reach their full potential.

One in three U.S. families struggles to provide enough diapers to keep a baby or toddler clean, dry, and healthy. 

You'll find more information on the National Diaper Bank Network website.

In 2021 the Colorado Legislature passed SB-027, the 
Emergency Supplies For Colorado Babies And Families Act, to provide funding for diapers for eligible individuals.

Read more about this new law on the Colorado General Assembly's webpage webpage.
