State policy decisions matter to children. In Massachusetts only two percent of children are uninsured; in Arizona, ten percent. In South Dakota, the percentage of children incarcerated is eight times higher than in Vermont. In Utah nearly half of all children living in female-headed households receive child support. In Hawai'i, fewer than a fifth of children recieve child support. Partnership members are skilled professionals that fight for the policies that will give children the best chances to become healthy, productive adults and valuable members of society. When they succeed, thousands or tens of thousands of children benefit. Meet all the members >>
