Children’s Week 2023, which runs from June 11-17, will feature conversations, briefings, and in-person events with federal and state lawmakers, members of the Administration, advocates, and academics on topics including what children and parents need and want, how to combat economic inequality, and the social and economic benefits of investing in children.

Children’s Week could not come at a better time, our children are facing a mortality crisis. They are wrestling with anti-child discrimination in their schools, sports, and other programs. Millions may lose their health care as pandemic programs unwind, and millions more struggle against the damage to our child care, early education, and child poverty reduction programs created by decades of disinvestment. Many of our lawmakers claim to speak for our children and grandchildren. Yet, so many pieces of legislation — from the expiration of the Child Tax Credit to the recent debt ceiling bill — in fact disproportionately hurt kids. During Children’s Week and beyond, Congress must take bold steps to ensure our children’s well-being, not harm them with cuts.
