Friend, children’s rights deserve protection across the world and here at home. Every child should grow up knowing that their rights are supported and they should feel empowered by living in safe, equitable, just and inclusive communities. The needs and opinions of children ought to serve as a key aspect of community decision-making.
UNICEF's Child Friendly Cities Initiative (CFCI) partners with cities to ensure that our cities prioritize children and their rights -- and you can help us make that possible in your community.
Urge your city to make your community child-friendly. Write to your city officials >>
The past year has shown how challenges like racial injustice, public health inequities and limited access to developmental opportunities cause children to suffer and can limit their potential. Local governments play a key role in realizing change for children and families facing these issues and many more. We need cities to put the well-being of children first by developing solutions to advance their rights for the better.
Through CFCI, UNICEF is working with cities across America to do just that. In CFCI partner cities like Minneapolis and San Francisco, we’re analyzing local efforts and conditions for child well-being to implement plans for action, shaped by and for children.
Let your local leaders know that you want your community to protect and empower the rights of children today >>
Together, we can build safer and more just communities for our children.
