Our Issues


Our Goal is to Give Every Child a Strong Start in Life

This is why Save the Children Action Network focuses on three critical issues:
expanding early childhood education in the U.S.,  protecting children in conflict and keeping children safe at the U.S.-Mexico border.


Why are These Issues Critical?

Early Childhood Education in the U.S. 

2 out of 5 children in America do not have access to early learning programs like preschool. 

Yet most of a child’s brain is developed by age 5. 

Learn how we’re helping more kids succeed. 



Protecting Children in Conflict

Nearly 1 in 5 children around the world are living in conflict zones.

The killing and abduction of children, as well as the targeting of schools and denial of humanitarian aid, are all on the rise around the world.

Learn how we’re working to end the war on children. 



 Keeping Children Safe at the Border

Children’s rights continue to be violated at the U.S. – Mexico border.

Vulnerable children are being held in custody longer than the legal limit, separated from their families, denied basic care and more.

Learn how we’re advocating for the protection of these children.
