The National Movement for America's Children, led by Prevent Child Abuse America, is a fast growing grassroots movement of organizations, businesses, leaders and people nationwide working to help ensure that every child has an equal opportunity for healthy growth and development. The economic future and stability of the communities where we live and work depend greatly on achieving this goal.
Americans everywhere, from leaders in government and business to people in communities across the country, are awakening to the difference we each can make in preventing child abuse and neglect from ever occurring and providing every child an equal opportunity for healthy development.
We are advocating for public policies such as the expansion of home visiting services and increased funding for the prevention of shaken baby syndrome, as well as corporate initiatives such as a child-friendly workplace and comprehensive flex time programs. We are personally promoting the health and well being of every child in our communities, donating to child advocacy causes, participating in youth-focused community organizations and dedicating time to babysit or support family or friends who are under stress.
We have awakened to the impact we each can have on the lives of our nation's children if we take action--even seemingly small actions--that can help ALL of America's children grow to become healthy, caring, contributing adults.
