As a national organization that has worked for over 100 years to help ensure that children grow up safely, in loving families and supportive communities, with everything they need to flourish and with connections to their communities, culture, ethnicity, race and language, we know that this moment in our nation’s history is especially troublesome. Senseless gun violence strains our comprehension and calls into question what kind of country and society we want to become.
We all need to redouble our efforts to make this vision a reality for all children, especially for those who are most vulnerable because of issues with immigration, education, housing, and health care, or because they live in communities where there is violence and poverty.
