Advocacy Summit 2014

Every child deserves a strong start in life and that includes good health and an early education. Yet many babies and young children lack the early opportunities they need to lead healthy and successful lives. Save the Children, the preeminent voice for children, is on Capitol Hill today and tomorrow to call on our leaders to invest in children from the start, and we want you to join us.

Strong Start for America's Children

All children deserve the chance to succeed, but right now millions don't get one. With the Strong Start for America's Children Act, we have an historic opportunity to give the nearly 1 in 4 children living in poverty a chance at a brighter future.
- Jennifer Garner, Passionate Advocate and Mom.
