New York’s children need a community where they can thrive in every possible way. Achieving this demands bold action in state budgeting, ensuring every investment and policy be weighed against the impact it has on children. The Children’s Agenda welcomes the strides made in this year’s budget, but our optimism is tempered by misplaced priorities for which children will bear the consequences.
The Children’s Agenda advocates for effective policies and drives evidenced-based solutions for the health, education and success of children. We are especially committed to children who are vulnerable because of poverty, racism, health inequities and trauma.
