Congressman Bob Brady (D., PA) has been named a Defender of Children by the First Focus Campaign for Children (FFCC). First Focus Campaign for Children is a national bipartisan children’s advocacy organization based in Washington, DC.

 

The award is part of a campaign to recognize the top 100 Members of Congress who advocate on behalf of children in policy and budget decisions. “I appreciate the honor,” Congressman Brady said. “But, there is so much more work to be done on behalf of our children.”

In selecting Defenders, the First Focus Campaign for Children recognized leaders who introduced, co-sponsored, and voted for legislation to meet children’s needs. In addition, FFCC considered Members of Congress who demonstrated extraordinary initiative by sponsoring hearings or garnering the support of their colleagues to improve the health, educational outcomes, and well-being of children.

 

Some of the Campaign for Children’s top federal priorities for 2012 are: Building a strong and stable future for the Children’s Health Insurance Program; Establishing a dedicated “Children’s Budget” that gives federal policymakers a clear picture of national investments in children; Setting a national child poverty target; and, Protecting rights for immigrant children.

 

“It is vital to the viability of the nation that we make children and families a priority in federal policy and budget decisions,” Congressman Brady said.
