South Carolina

People in South Carolina care about kids here in the United States and around the world.

Last year, 1,077 advocates in the Palmetto State pledged to support a presidential candidate who would invest in kids.

From expanding preschool for kids in the U.S. to ensuring children survive and thrive around the world, South Carolina’s advocates are the voice for children.

There are countless ways you can raise your voice for kids! Our activists post information and actions to their social media pages, staff booths at community events, meet with elected officials and even ask presidential candidates questions about how they would work to help children.

Plus, joining in our work will positively impact your life as well as the lives of children in South Carolina and beyond.
