Support the Protect Our Kids Act.
While Prevent Child About America remains focused on healthy children and families, engaging neighborhoods and communities and preventing child abuse and neglect before it ever occurs, we are also supporting Every Child Matters' efforts to ensure that the Protect Our Kids Act - more here - is passed. The Act "will create a National Commission on Child Abuse and Neglect Deaths to study and evaluate federal, state, and private child welfare systems and develop a national strategy to prevent and reduce these deaths." And while we look forward to the country ultimately pursuing the development of a national strategy to support the healthy development of all children, we encourage you to support the passing of this Act as well.
