Last week, Congresswoman Lois Capps was named a ‘Champion for Children’ by the national children’s advocacy group First Focus Campaign for Children for her history of prioritizing education during her career.

Capps, who represents the 23rd congressional district, was honored alongside 49 other congressional members for her work in sponsoring pro-education legislation, marking 2012 as her third year receiving the recognition. Each year, First Focus selects 50 senators and representatives as Champions for Children and 50 other policymakers as Defenders of Children to recognize their roles in improving education and other sectors that directly affect the nation’s youth.
