Urge Candidates to Invest in Kids

Sign a petition urging candidates to support child care. 

Quality child care helps level the playing field, particularly for children who living in poverty.  Kids who enroll in early education programs are more successful in school and in life.

Sign the petition asking presidential and congressional candidates to commit to building a better child care system to serve our children and working parents.


Sign a petition urging candidates to support vulnerable children. 

More than 30 million children have been uprooted by conflict and violence. Children in crowded refugee camps face the potential spread of the virus and a lack of hygiene and health services.

Sign the petition asking presidential and congressional candidates to commit to supporting international aid to help the world’s most vulnerable children.
