Tell Congress to Protect Kids from Homelessness and Street Violence


Each year nearly 5,000 children are killed on our streets. Many of these children are vulnerable homeless teens targeted by criminals who buy and sell them into prostitution, subject them to abuse and violence, and often leave them to die anonymously knowing that the public isn’t paying attention.

No one seems to care.

It’s time to fight back and prioritize ending teen homelessness and combating the criminals who victimize our kids on the streets. It’s time to stop ignoring the violence.

For too long our leaders have failed to prioritize protecting our children. They haven’t done enough to keep kids safe from the violence of the streets. That’s why they need to hear from us right now. They need to know that we want more resources, more attention, and a real effort to end this violence forever.

Join the movement to bring the message to our leaders in Washington by signing this petition, demanding that Congress and the President do everything they can to end the senseless deaths of our children on the streets.
