Securing a Prosperous Future for the Next Generation
Nemours Children’s Health System, Mental Health America , First Focus on Children , The Education Redesign Lab at Harvard University , Forum for Youth Investment and Children's Funding Project have called upon the incoming Biden-Harris Administration to establish a White House Office on Children and Youth and a federal Children’s Cabinet. Children are the future of our nation. Our economic and civic strength and prosperity rely on today’s investment in children and youth. At this critical inflection point for our nation’s future, we need to re-imagine our systems for optimal health, well-being and development for all children and youth.
Over the past few months, 350 organizations and leaders have signed on to a letter in support of a National Strategy for Children and Youth and a Children’s Budget, which would be coordinated by this new White House Office. To add your support and sign the letter, please use our White House Office on Children and Youth Sign-On Form .
