What we’re reading this week about children in DC and across the country

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.
