the new year upon us, we want to share with you how excited we are for
all the good work we plan to do as a Movement in the coming year around ensuring all children have happy and healthy childhoods.
We also want to let you know that we plan to tailor these weekly
messages going forward to focus on the various themes participants
raised in the town hall meetings we held across the country in 2011.
These themes include among many others, the responsibility of adults to
promote an environment free of sexual abuse, bullying as peer-to-peer
abuse and the importance of brain development on the subsequent academic
success of children. Finally, we encourage you to not only stay active on the National Movement for America’s Children site, but to encourage your
friends, family, colleagues and neighbors to do so as well, so that we
can keep building momentum and having an impact on the lives of children, their families and the neighborhoods they live in. Have a great week.
