Sign The Pledge, Shape The Strategy
The National Movement for America’s Children is coming together to call on the country to establish and implement a comprehensive set of actions and policies (a national strategy) to ensure that all of our children are given an equal opportunity to develop—socially, emotionally and cognitively—in healthy, nurturing homes, schools, neighborhoods and communities. This begins with Americans everywhere joining together to call for a national strategy for our children. Join the Movement by signing the National Children’s Pledge and help us develop a comprehensive national strategy.
THE NATIONAL CHILDREN’S PLEDGE
The United States has a long history of declaring our belief in the moral and socioeconomic importance of the family and the necessity to raise healthy children. Yet too often our policies, systems and actions are not designed or executed in a manner that measurably and comprehensively supports the healthy development of each and every child, regardless of race, wealth, health, religion or geography.
We, the undersigned, hereby call upon our country (government, business, faith-based organizations, communities, systems and individual citizens) to:
Commit to helping meet the needs of all children in America in order to provide them an equal opportunity for healthy growth and development, regardless of race, wealth, health, religion or geography.
We, the undersigned, also support the development and implementation of a national strategy for America’s children, designed to guide the implementation of policies and actions that will measurably deliver for the development of every child in America.
