VOICES Launches 'Vote Kids 2008' to Engage Voters and Candidates in Shaping National Policies for America's Children
Date:8/12/2008

WASHINGTON, Aug. 12 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Voices for America's Children today launched an online campaign (http://www.votekids08.org) to engage voters and candidates to speak out on the importance of investing in the key building blocks for children's positive and healthy development.

"Children's issues must be a priority for all Presidential and Congressional candidates. Our nation thrives when our children have adequate health care, quality early care and education, access to world-class schools, and other programs that support their well-being at home and in our society. Much will be decided about their future by the choices we make in November," said Bill Bentley, VOICES' President & CEO. "Our goal is to make children's issues a political force in 2008 by asking the question: who's for kids, and who's just kidding?"

The online campaign features an e-postcard that citizens can send to their Congressional candidates. The initial phase will target children's health care and the importance of strengthening the State Children's Health Insurance Program (SCHIP), which provides affordable health coverage to children in working families. The Web site showcases a map allowing voters to see which candidates have made children a priority by posting a children's agenda to their individual campaign Web site.

To date, only five Congressional campaigns have posted a children's agenda to their Web sites.

"Investing in programs to support the positive development of children is an investment in a strong workforce and a vibrant future for our nation, yet budget projections find that while federal spending will rise by $650 billion over the next decade, investments in children will see only 0.01 percent of this increase," said Bentley. "In this pivotal election year, now is the time to raise our voices to make children a national priority."
