Little Citizens, Big Issues

As I reflect on our efforts in 2013 to address critical issues on behalf of DC children, I can’t help but think how our hard work is truly making an impact on behalf of children.

It is that time of year, a time for reflection. A critical time to take stock and prioritize. Though we have had some tremendous wins on behalf of DC children, there is still more work to be done when we know that 17,000 children living in the DC neighborhoods of Mayfair, Hillbrook and Mahaning Heights, have NO recreation centers or playgrounds.

Two weeks ago in Nashville, DC Action for Children’s Executive Director HyeSook Chung and I were thrilled to attend the KIDS COUNT Communications Institute in Nashville, TN. As the home of DC KIDS COUNT, DC Action for Children is a member of the national KIDS COUNT network, a group of organizations tracking child well-being in all 50 states plus DC, Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands.

Last Friday afternoon, we received some sunshine during all that rain! 

HyeSook Chung, Executive Director of DC Action, was one of seven extraordinary women to receive this year’s Washington Area Toyota Dealers Tribute to Working Women Award during a luncheon at the National Press Club.
