America’s kids are not alright. Thirty million are hungry. Twelve million live in poverty — and that number is soaring to an all-time high. More than 6 million are expected to lose their health insurance this year.
Yet, for many of our leaders, children are an afterthought. Look no further than COVID-19 and its economic fallout.
During our Third Annual Children’s Week, First Focus on Children will sit down with several members of Congress and will work with our partner advocates to amplify the issues most important to our nation’s children and call on our country’s lawmakers to act in the best interest of the child.
