    30 days and counting...The Children's Health Insurance Program(CHIP) has a proven track record of providing high-quality, cost-effective coverage for low-income children and pregnant women in working families, yet Congress let its funding expire on September 30, 2017. Nine million children whose health coverage depend on CHIP cannot wait a day longer. Now is the time for Congress to act and stabilize its funding stream. http://bit.ly/2xMm4GF

    "The bipartisan Dream Act of 2017 will provide Dreamers- including our youngest Dreamers- educational and employment opportunities ripped away when the President ended DACA. It will also provide an eventual path to citizenship for these young people, strengthening their futures and the future of our nation." Marian Wright Edelman. We proudly join more than 300 organizations urging Congress to move forwards and pass the clean DREAM act now. http://bit.ly/2wHLqS5

    Tallya Rhodes experienced a series of moves and disruptions during her life. Her mothers search for safety and employment led her family to North Carolina and two years ago back to Washington, D.C.. The first several months were especially hard. Without a job, Tallyas mother could not afford rent, and they ended up living in homeless shelters for months. Despite these challenges, Tallya dedicated herself to school and received support from teachers and friends. She enrolled in Honors and AP classes while maintaining a GPA over 4.0. The image of graduation she carried inside motived her daily to succeed. Tallya aspires to become an entrepreneur. Tallya is one of the five exceptional young people from the Washington D.C. area Children's Defense Fund will celebrate at its annual Beat The Odds event. Not only do these awards celebrate the scholarship recipients, they are meant to inspire community leaders and citizens to help all children struggling to overcome adversity. On November 7, join us at the Newseum and experience what hope feels like. Buy your ticket today! http://bit.ly/2yFMQRv
