Advocacy

Join the National Movement for America’s Children!

“Our most basic obligation is to support the healthy development of our nation’s children. To be stewards of the next generation and, in doing so, be stewards of our entire future. Yet too often, promises go unfulfilled and our children suffer – which means our communities, economy and security suffer too.

Now is the time for our nation to awaken to how we can provide every child with an equal opportunity for healthy growth and development!”
