Today is the 40th anniversary of Plyler v. Doe, which affirmed that ALL children in the U.S. have an equal right to attend public school regardless of immigration status. Did you know TX Gov Greg Abbott wants it overturned? We must fight to defend our victories! #Plyler40

Rethinking practice and policy is critical to protecting children/youth from harmful police practices. In @ChildTrends' new brief, @VJStJohn @AM_Headley @KHarper_edulove provide recommendations for reducing youth exposure to adverse police contact: ow.ly/hi4X50Jy74Y
On this day in 1982, all 9 #SCOTUS Justices agreed in Plyler v. Doe that keeping kids out of school is bad policy. Thanks to this ruling, every child can get a public education without worrying that their #immigrationstatus will bar them from school. #Plyler40 #publicschools

“I am holding my son so tight because in the middle of the protest, when someone held up an anti-gun-control sign, the energy around that made him really emotional. I wanted to hold him, wanted to protect him and let him feel safe.” —@RevDrStarsky Photo: Shuran Huang/ @TheCut
.@EconomicSecProj’s @nataliefoster writes on new research from @CpspPoverty in @thehill, which shows why programs like the #ChildTaxCredit have been able to lift millions from poverty. The key? Monthly payments. READ the full piece: ow.ly/l6q050JxmhX
via @washingtonpost: “The kids are watching. And listening. They are asking and they will be voting.” Young people are angry and you should be too. How are you supporting youth in the fight against #gunviolence? #protectchildrennotguns #marchforourlives washingtonpost.com/dc-md-va/2022/…

.@USTreasury secretaries Robert Rubin, Jacob Lew, and @SecYellen agree, #ChildTaxCredit would NOT INCREASE INFLATION. The CTC would cut poverty by 40%, address racial disparities, and give relief for rising costs. Tell Congress to revive the #CTC! ow.ly/ghyt50Jwkr1

“I think about the 74 million children and youth under 18 in [the U.S.] We have to make a generational commitment to this concept, and in[ the next 25 year period], we need to be ‘raising democracy.’ I say raising because our democracy has never been multiracial.” @RevDrStarsky

We must not lose another life to #gunviolence. It's time to act. It's time to #ProtectChildrenNotGuns! twitter.com/washingtonpost…
Reading the names of the children and their teachers who were slaughtered in Uvalde, TX. Enough is Enough. Guns that literally rip people’s bodies apart have no place in our society.
