National Advocacy Group Names Capps ‘Champion for Children’
This week, the First Focus Campaign for Children, a national, bipartisan children’s advocacy group, recognized Rep. Lois Capps, D-Santa Barbara, as a “Champion for Children” for her leadership on issues important to children during the 112th Congress (2011-12).
This is the third year in a row that Capps has been recognized.
“Investments in our children are investments in our future,” Capps said. “That means ensuring they have access to quality health care and education, safe places to live, and access to opportunities to help them now and as they grow. And these investments have a ripple effect, strengthening families and engaging communities.
