Champions and Defenders of Children 2012

Oct 18, 2012

The First Focus Campaign for Children is a bipartisan children’s advocacy organization that advocates for legislative change in Congress to ensure children and families are a priority in federal policy and budget decision. The First Focus Campaign for Children has recognized several members of the Congressional Social Work Caucus for their legislative work in improving the well-being of America’s children. The First Focus Campaign for Children took note of leaders who introduced, co-sponsored, and voted for legislation that would best meet the needs of children.
