Responding to the COVID-19 Pandemic



Background

The COVID-19 pandemic is sweeping the world, our country and our communities affecting every aspect of our daily lives. Kids and families in the U.S. and around the world are struggling with this reality.

In the U.S., many child care centers face a real fear that they may not be able to open again when the virus subsides. And we need to ensure that the Biden administration and Congress treats children with compassion at our borders and investigates past violations of human rights.

We must be a voice for children during this difficult time. Learn how you can make a difference for kids today.
