Dear President Biden and Vice President Harris:

Congratulations on rising to our nation’s highest offices. We’ve been talking to America’s children about what the next four years under your leadership might bring, and we think you’ll want to hear what they have to say.

We applaud your agenda, which reveals your intention to reduce child poverty, treat child care like the national infrastructure that it is, expand children’s health care, prioritize families in immigration, address climate change, and enact many other initiatives that are in the best interest of children. We urge you to consider the measures proposed here in these videos by children themselves in response to our #DearGrownUps campaign.

Thank you for letting their voices be heard.


Bruce Lesley
President, First Focus on Children
