WASHINGTON, DC – On Wednesday, the Senate passed a bipartisan resolution introduced by Senators James Lankford (R-OK) and Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) designating September 2019 as “National Child Awareness Month.” The resolution promotes the awareness of charities that benefit children and youth-serving organizations across the country.
The resolution is also cosponsored by Senators Maggie Hassan (D-NH), Shelley Moore Capito (R-WV), Doug Jones (D-AL), Mike Braun (R-IN), Catherine Cortez Masto (D-NV), Kamala Harris (D-CA), Gary Peters (D-MI), Sherrod Brown (D-OH), and Jacky Rosen (D-NV).
“We are at our best as a nation when we care for children,” Lankford said. “My family is grateful for the tireless dedication of providers, volunteers, and all those who pitch in to give our children and youth support, care, mentorship, and encouragement. September is a month for us to pause and say an additional thank you for their continued work to provide a strong foundation for children. I am honored to join Senator Feinstein again this year to recognize September as National Child Awareness Month.”
“National Child Awareness Month is a chance to celebrate the crucial role that charities and nonprofits play in improving the lives of children in America,” Feinstein said. “These groups invest in children at all ages to prepare them for success in school and beyond, and we’re thankful for the work they do.”
