UNICEF USA: Celebrating Legislation On Education, Protection And Nutrition
Fabienne Goldgaber, manager for advocacy and engagement at UNICEF USA, highlights recent U.S. legislation addressing children’s health and related issues globally. Goldgaber writes, “Over the past year, supporters and volunteers of UNICEF USA have been advocating for three significant pieces of legislation to bolster girls’ education, prevent and respond to violence against children around the world, and reaffirm the importance of global nutrition. We are thrilled to share that the Keeping Girls in School Act (H.R.2153/S.1071), Resolution to End Violence Against Children Globally (H.Res.230/S.Res.112) and Global Nutrition Resolution (H.Res.189/S.Res.260) have passed the House Foreign Affairs Committee (HFAC)” (10/30).
