Bus Tour

Before the state budget is finalized, we need parents, children, and communities across California to demand action on our child poverty crisis. California has more children living in poverty than any other state. One in five California children lives in poverty. That’s almost 2 million children—with 450,000 of those children living in families trying to survive on less than $12,900 per year. But we also have a comprehensive plan to end deep child poverty. Let’s Pass the Plan.

Child poverty is a moral crisis, a public health crisis, and a state fiscal crisis. Let’s mobilize.
