Child Protection Legislation | Contact Congress

Every year, Congress passes scores of new laws dealing with a huge variety of issues from national security to the economy. In the midst of this, it is all too easy for legislation intended to protect children from abuse and neglect to fall by the wayside. For this reason, it is vital that we keep the pressure on members of Congress to pass much needed legislation designed to protect the most innocent and defenseless in society – our children.

Here you will learn about important legislation that is pending before Congress and be able to personally email letters of support to your Congressperson and Senators. We urge you to let them know that you stand with Childhelp in requesting their support for the following bills.
