There are an estimated 60 million child brides worldwide – some as young as 7 years old. If the present trend continues, another 100 million girls will be forced into marriage over the next decade.
But right now our members of Congress have the opportunity to do something to protect these innocent children. A new bill would give the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) more power to work with countries around the world to fight child marriage – but it's up to us to make sure it passes. Please fill out the form below to send this message to your legislators, urging them to protect girls from child marriage by supporting this critical law.
