OUR CHILDREN NEED ACTION NOW

They said we didn’t need to worry about the children. Until we did.

They said they’d care for all kids equally. But they don’t.

They said the kids are alright.

THE KIDS ARE NOT ALRIGHT

Lawmakers say they care about kids. But decades of chronic underfunding have made COVID-19 a crisis for them.

  • A record number are going hungry.

  • Nearly 7 million could lose their health care.

  • Child poverty afflicts more than 11 million and threatens millions more.

  • Black and Latinx children are many times more likely to go hungry, homeless, or without health care.

  • We’ve made going to school a life-or-death choice.

TELL WASHINGTON TO FIX THIS NOW

Kids can’t vote. And they don’t have Super PACs.

So when it comes to policies, children come last and get the least. 

Now is the time to demand our elected officials #Commit2Kids.

DEMAND THAT LAWMAKERS #COMMIT2KIDS

Between now and the November 3 election, First Focus on Children is challenging candidates and elected officials nationwide to tell us what, exactly, they will do for our country’s children.  

Join us to demand that sitting and aspiring lawmakers, including the presidential candidates, prioritize an agenda for our nation’s children. 

Demand that they #Commit2Kids.
