Editor's Note: DC Action for Children is pleased to welcome Gabriela, our new Research Fellow. Welcome to our team, Gabby!

While volunteering for two months in Medellín, Colombia with DukeEngage, I witnessed firsthand how local community activism and government support worked together to transform one of the most dangerous cities in the world.

“Library Card Sign-Up Month”

by HyeSook Chung
on September 12, 2013

Too often, policy changes to benefit children take the form of quick fixes and little tweaks. Policymakers and advocates tinker around the edges, tackling the problems that seem most easily solvable. No matter how good our intentions are as we try to provide children in DC with quick fix solutions, it is clearly NOT enough. Nor is it fruitful to continue to think these small interventions will somehow solve the systemic challenges our children face.
