You want to prevent abuse against children and at some point since 2008 you joined this Cause to proclaim it. Now is your chance to help make it happen.

Pledge to lend your ear for children. Watch the three upcoming presidential debates and the vice-presidential debate with an attention to how many times the candidates talk about children.

To prevent child maltreatment, we must all be aware of the state of America's children, their needs and opportunities. For example, did you know that more than 1 out of 5 children live in poverty? When children and their families cannot meet their basic needs, they are at risk for abuse and neglect. We can only hope to ensure child safety and well-being if we talk about what they need. So, we're starting at the top. What do the candidates, proposing to lead our country have to say about our children?

Pledge to listen to the debates with an ear to what is being said about children.
