First Focus on Children sent the following letter to President Joseph Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris congratulating them on the achievements of their first 100 days in office and laying out priorities for improving the lives of children over the next 100 days.

Excerpt from the letter:

As a leading advocacy voice for children, First Focus on Children would like to specifically acknowledge your work uplifting children and youth. The American Rescue Plan (ARP), The American Families Plan, and other initiatives set by the White House within this short time period have demonstrated your commitment to kids. Our organization is especially grateful for the proposed legislation in the American Families Plan, calling it potentially “the most important piece of legislation for children and families to ever be enacted into law.” We are optimistic that you will continue to prioritize children, and we look forward to working together to create a reality in which every child can live a healthy, safe, and successful life.
