WHO ARE WE?
Promise the Children is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization. We believe that the future of our democratic society depends on the education and healthy development of our most vulnerable citizens – our nation’s children. To this end we reach out to volunteers who will work together and advocate for programs that support U.S. children and their families.
We offer information and action alerts for your consideration about government funding for safety net subsidies that our low-earning families depend on. These programs help to pay for childcare, early education, food, health care, and more. Information and action alerts are posted on our website, our Facebook page, and on Twitter. In addition we email timely information and action alerts to those who sign up on our web site.
As of the beginning of January 2018, Congress is considering many issues involving children. These include:
(1) CHIP, the Children’s Health Care Program, that provides access to health care for millions of children who would otherwise have no health care, needs your support.
(2) Undocumented immigrant families are being shattered by ICE even though they are paying all their taxes and have jobs that support their children. We must have paths to citizenship for families that contribute to the welfare of our country.
(3) DACA, young people who entered the U.S. as children, need your support. These young people support themselves, pay college tuitions and their taxes. They need a path to citizenship.
(4) Of the five worst mass shootings in U.S. history, three of them have occurred in the last 17 months. It’s time for our politicians to put the safety of children and the public over the interest of the gun lobby and take real action toward reducing gun violence.
Let your voice be heard! Tell your federal legislators how you feel about CHIP, immigrants, DACA and ending gun violence. Text 520-200-2223 with your zip code as the message. You will receive contact information for our federally elected officials. Here more contact nformation.
Thank you for visiting. Sign up to advocate with us in support of our nation’s children.
