image001Since January of 2015 nearly 40 Arizona children have died after the Department of Child Services had been notified (some with multiple reports).  Nationally, it appears that Arizona is not alone in being unable to protect its most vulnerable citizens.  This report capsulizes child protection news across America for March 2016.

The meanness of our politics now includes abandoning children for many of us.  Become a CASA volunteer in your state & show up once a year to stand for children’s issues at the State Capital to tell your legislators to vote for child friendly initiatives (if you don’t – who will?)  Share this with your networks
