We were recently introduced to and joined a growing group of individuals and organizations that are banding together to put California’s children first with the Children Now Movement. We thought you’d like to know about it and learn how to join the movement.
Children Now, a leading non-partisan, multi-issue research, policy development, and advocacy organization dedicated to promoting children’s health and education in California and creating national media policies that support child development, launched and is spearheading the Movement.
For nearly 25 years, Children Now has informed state and national policymaking to improve the lives of millions of children in California and across the country. The organization’s expert policy staff is unique in the range of issues it covers, which includes Early Learning & Development, K-12 Education, After-school and Extended Learning Time, Health Coverage and Access to Care, Childhood Obesity, and Foster Care, among others. Children Now’s efforts in these areas are funded by the top foundations in the country, including The California Endowment, The David and Lucile Packard Foundation, The W.K. Kellogg Foundation, and The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.
This year, the organization has outlined a number of priorities for California’s policymakers in the areas of education, health, integrated services and child welfare. As you can see, these are all topics near and dear to us at Saint Vincent’s Day Home.
Please take a moment to learn more about the Children Now Movement and consider joining us as we work to improve the lives and future for all the children in California.
