Strong Start for America’s Children

High quality early childhood development and learning investments serve as a buffer to the negative effects of poverty and provide a foundation for success and lifelong benefits particularly for the poorest and most vulnerable children. Studies have shown that children enrolled in high quality early childhood programs are more likely to graduate from high school, hold a job, make more money and be less likely to commit a crime than their peers who do not participate. These investments are the right thing to do and the smart thing to do. We all need to contribute to make it happen. We all stand to benefit.

Ask your Senators and Representative to co-sponsor the Strong Start for America’s Children Act.

Protect Children, Not Guns

We are deeply shaken by the horror at Sandy Hook Elementary in Newtown, Connecticut. The 20 children and 6 educators slain there are the latest victims of America’s gun violence plague. Each week, 350 children and teens are killed or injured by guns—enough to fill 14 more classrooms of 25 students. What have we become as a people when even in the face of such sin and suffering, we continue to protect guns before children?

Contact your members of Congress and tell them to protect children instead of guns.
