A letter of support spearheaded by First Focus was sent to the U.S. Senate, encouraging the importance of the Children’s Budget Act, legislation that will require that the President’s annual budget request includes a separate analysis of all spending on children’s programs.

The letter has been signed by a strong and cross-cutting group of over 100 organizations, including the National Education Association, American Association of School Administrators, Public Education Network, National Association of Children’s Hospitals, American Academy of Pediatrics, Foster Care Coalition, Coalition for Juvenile Justice, YMCA of the USA, Pew Charitable Trusts, Children’s Defense Fund, Voices for America’s Children, in addition to many others.
