Letter: The Administration should take these actions and achieve our shared goals for children in 2024Federal Budget
Today, First Focus Campaign for Children sent a letter to President Joe Biden, Vice President Kamala Harris, Office of Management & Budget Director Shalanda Young, and Domestic Policy Advisor Neera Tanden, urging them to do all they can to continue to build on the regulatory and Administrative actions taken to better the lives of children.
Excerpt from the letter:
As President Biden often says: “Don’t tell me what you value. Show me your budget, and I’ll tell you what you value.” In a time of crisis, we must value our children. We urge the Biden-Harris Administration to do all it can to address this crisis children desperately need our nation’s leaders to step up and address these issues. Unfortunately, this Congress seems hard-pressed to do that. At First Focus Campaign for Children, we have identified well over 100 bills (many of them bipartisan) that would improve child health, education, safety, and well-being, and yet, they are languishing.
