The Congressional Children’s Caucus in conjunction with First Focus are hosting a kickoff event on September 14th to highlight the priorities for the remainder of the 112th Congress. Co-chairs Donald Manzullo (R-IL) and Sheila Jackson Lee (D-TX) recently sent a Dear Colleague to members of the House of Representatives, inviting them to the event, as well as extending an invitation to join the caucus. The goal of this year’s caucus is to build towards becoming a stronger voice for children. The co-chairs are planning various events to accomplish their goal and to highlight the issues impacting children today. CWLA supports the goals of the bipartisan Congressional Children’s Caucus and looks forward to working with its members to ensure that children and families remain a national priority.
