Letter: Build Back Better is a children’s bill— and needs to remain so.
First Focus Campaign for Children sent this letter to President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris urging them to protect kids in the Build Back Better package negotiations.
Excerpt from the letter:
We know that the Biden-Harris Administration understands the hardships impacting children and the deepened disparities that were brought on by the pandemic. Your commitment to alleviate this suffering stands out in the American Rescue Plan (ARP) and other actions taken by the Administration during your first year in office. The framework put forth by the White House in the American Families Plan resulted in a robust Build Back Better bill passed by the House of Representatives. We thank you for demonstrating strong and inspiring leadership for kids at a very important time, and ask that you continue this commitment to children in your leadership with Build Back Better until a final bill prioritizing children is passed by both chambers.
