January e-Newsletter


Happy New Year!

Our resolution at CHILDREN AT RISK is to leverage our 25 years of research and public policy analysis to raise awareness around the issues our children are facing today, and to advocate successfully for public policy changes.   

As you may know, the 84th Legislative Session started this week, and Texas policy makers are setting their agenda. CHILDREN AT RISK has been working tirelessly to frame our legislative focus to better support Texas children. Key issues include initiatives for expanded learning opportunities and quality pre-k programs; reducing demand for human trafficking while also increasing quality of care standards for victims; advocating for accessible healthy food and recess options in our neighborhoods and our schools; and providing evidence-based parenting classes, improved family leave policies and medical coverage for families. For details, please attend one of our Legislative Briefings: Breakfast in Dallas or Lunch in Fort Worth on Tuesday, January 27.

Thank you for your continued support and partnership!  It’s going to be a pivotal year.

Very truly yours,

Dr. Bob Sanborn
President & CEO
