Putting Children First
The confusion and dread that the pandemic is causing have put the children we serve in the eye of the storm. Child welfare, juvenile justice and immigration systems that were already flawed if not broken are buckling under the weight of an unprecedented health and economic disaster.
All of us are feeling the effects of this pandemic, but our Children’s Rights community is strong and we will find our way through this together.
TAKE ACTION TODAY
Call on Your Governor to Help Older Foster Youth
The COVID-19 crisis endangers young people transitioning out of foster care–without continued assistance, they will fall through the cracks.
Tell your governor you need them to support older foster youth and prevent aging out during this crisis.
Families Over Facilities: Prioritize the Health & Safety of Our Children
Help amplify the message organizations and medical professionals are sending to government officials across the nation. Youth must be released from dangerous facilities where they can’t social distance during COVID-19.
We put together a social media toolkit with sample messaging and graphics for your use.
Help Make Sure COVID Relief Reaches Kids Who Need It Most
Vulnerable children and their families cannot be forgotten as our child welfare system buckles during the global fight to contain the COVID-19 outbreak. Call on your elected officials to expand child welfare funding.
