Keep America’s Children Safe

    1. Sponsored by

      Save the Children

Every child deserves a happy and safe childhood. But for too many, including the 20 young lives lost in Newtown, CT, that isn’t a reality. 

For nearly 100 years, Save the Children has worked to ensure the safety and well-being of children around the world. But the challenges for this generation of America’s children—from a culture of violence to a poverty crisis that is affecting 16 million children—are unlike any we’ve seen before. 

We cannot stand by and let violence, poverty and other threats become pervasive parts of childhood in America. We need everyone at the table for a national conversation to find bold, new ideas. 

That’s why Save the Children is joining forces with caring people like you and our partners to call on President Obama and Congress to establish a new National Commission on Children to ensure the safety and well-being of every child.

America’s children need YOU! Together, we can protect them today and give them hope for tomorrow. Sign our petition NOW and then share it with your friends!
