Petition: To: President Obama & U.S. Congress. Support the call for a National Commission on Children's Safety. Every child deserves a happy & safe childhood. But for too many, including the 20 young lives lost in Newtown, CT, that isn't a reality.

During the State of the Union address on February 12, 2013 President Obama will describe where we stand as a nation our triumphs, our shortcomings and our obligation to build a better future for children. We have been made starkly aware of where America is falling short in its promise to our own children in the past several months. From staggering childhood poverty rates, to inadequate disaster preparedness, to the tragic events in Newtown, we are not giving today's children the tools they need to be healthy, safe, and successful. That's why Save the Children is joining forces with the Boys & Girls Clubs of America, Cal Ripken Sr. Foundation, Catholic Charities USA, Child Care Aware of America, Children's Health Fund, Every Child Matters, First Focus, Girls Inc., Harlem Children's Zone, KaBOOM!, National Association of School Nurses, Share Our Strength, and the YMCA to call on President Obama and Congress to establish a new National Commission on Children to ensure the safety and well-being of every child.
