Giving Thanks

November 25, 2021

“In everything give thanks.” That Bible verse can be hard to put into practice. Just by being alive we can be sure of having moments of sadness as well as happiness. When you’re active in politics, you experience both wins and losses. Sometimes it can be hard to feel grateful. That might be true for […]

School curriculums and the new politics of fear

November 19, 2021

There are two undisputable facts. First, most people really have little understanding of the true meaning of critical race theory (CRT). Second, there is little evidence that critical race theory is taught in K-12 classes. The means by which students learn about the past represents the latest rallying cry among political conservatives. For that reason, […]

Democrats’ Virginia Defeat lesson: Give Voters Something to Vote For

November 12, 2021

Election Day in Virginia was a major defeat for the Democratic Party. It could signal a much bigger disaster in 2022 if Democratic officials do not learn the right lessons and do not deliver on the promises they have made to voters. Every election is complicated. There is no single explanation for Republican Glenn Youngkin’s […]

A chance to close the gulf, tax the rich

November 5, 2021

For many American families the COVID-19 pandemic brought significant new challenges, and more than half of all households with children have lost income since the pandemic began. But a new report by Americans for Tax Fairness—a campaign of more than 420 endorsing organizations, including the Children’s Defense Fund, united in support of a fair tax […]

A new chance for child care

October 28, 2021

As Congress debates over critical early childhood investments, I am reminded of 1971 when earlier efforts to enact a comprehensive child care system were toppled by regressive politics and am determined not to allow our nation to repeat the mistakes of the past. Fifty years ago a national moral commitment to children and families almost […]

A Politician’s Shameless Bigotry

October 22, 2021

There’s an old saying about bullies: they can dish it out, but they can’t take it. Witness North Carolina Lt. Gov. Mark Robinson. He abuses his position of authority to insult and demean people. But when he gets criticized for making harmful comments, he whines that he’s the real victim. People For the American Way’s […]

Bipartisan Infrastructure Bill and Build Back Better: Remedies for decades of neglect

October 15, 2021

“These bills are about competitiveness versus complacency. They’re about opportunity versus decay. They’re about leading the world or continuing to let the world pass us by, which is literally happening. To support these investments is to create a rising America, America that’s moving. And to oppose these investments is to be complicit in America’s decline. […]

Congress: Don’t play political football with children’s future

October 8, 2021

As Congress continues to negotiate and finalize a budget reconciliation package, we must ensure the needs of children are not sacrificed to protect rich individuals and corporations. Congress has a once-in-a-generation opportunity to put America’s most vulnerable children and families first, advance racial equity, and make a down payment on ending child poverty. Last week […]

“Where does it hurt?” Listening to heal our children

October 1, 2021

This year marks the 30th anniversary of the Children’s Defense Fund’s interfaith National Observance of Children’s Sabbaths. We are grateful to the hundreds of congregations across the country that join us in this celebration, recognizing that the shared values of justice, compassion, and care for the most vulnerable are at the heart of every faith […]

Thank You, Black Women

September 24, 2021

When California governor Gavin Newsom woke up on Wednesday, September 15, 2021, I hope he fell to his knees and said, “Thank you, God, thank you, Black women.” To be sure, there are many others to thank, from the energized Chicanx/Latinx community to the Democrats who surged to the polls at the last minute. Some […]
