You know the statistics. Nearly two million California children — that’s one in every five kids — lives in poverty. As a native Californian and a Christian, that pains me, as I’m sure it pains you and everyone who cares about the future of the state we call home.
But my message to you is one of hope, not pain.
We know how to fix this problem. We can change the statistics, we can change lives, and we can end child poverty for California’s children.
True change rests in our hands. For child poverty to end, we must start inspiring compassionate Californians like you to join the movement and finally speak out.
Please share this video and urge your friends, your family, and your co-workers to join with you in saying “enough” to child poverty. Together, we will make sure California’s leaders do the right thing and bring hope to millions of children.
Blessings to you and your family,
