In crisis situations, like war torn zones or impoverished areas, children are some of the most vulnerable, along with women. In some places, children are forced to fend for themselves because their parents have passed away. In others, they are kidnapped and become child soldiers. But what about the children living right down the street in America? Here, too, they face troubles because their parents are not always their best advocates. Some children are abused or hungry, and have no way to be heard. By getting our lawmakers to focus on the children who can't speak for themselves, we are keeping the promise of greater future generations alive. We are giving them a better chance at becoming productive members of society. You can take action here.
