Step Up & Stand Up For Kids

We commemorate today Juneteenth, the ending of slavery in the United States, two and a half years after the signing of the Emancipation Proclamation in 1863.

KAA launch video: Our new name & Brand

Kids Above All is about drawing a line in the sand. Too many children, especially children from black and brown communities, are dying, suffering, and enduring daily trauma from racism, poverty and violence. Policymakers, community members, the general public–all of us– haven’t done enough to place the safety, well-being and education of kids above everything else.

That means giving kids, regardless of what they look like or what community they come from, have every opportunity to have the best life possible. It’s time to step up and stand up so all kids can achieve their full potential.

We invite you to view our launch video for more information.
