High 5 for Kids

Will Presidential Candidates Raise their Hands for Kids?

Kids can’t vote and they don’t give money to political candidates.

That’s why we launched the High 5 for Kids campaign – to give children a voice on the campaign trail.

In the midst of a global COVID-19 pandemic, it’s more important than ever to come together and ensure that children’s needs are at the top of their priority list!

Will you join us and raise your hand and your voice for kids?

Speaking with Candidates: Where Do They Stand?

Save the Children and Save the Children Action Network put together a guide for how candidates of the 2020 election can prioritize children in their campaigns.

Our advocates have also gone to rallies, speeches and more to ask candidates about issues that affect children. View some of their responses below.
