Hi. My name is [____] and I am constituent from [city, state].

I’m calling to ask [Senator/Representative _______] to invest at least $300 million in “emergency funding” to strengthen child safety and protection programs in the next COVID-19 Relief Package. Stay at home orders and isolation are vital to flattening the curve of coronavirus, but they are also exposing children to an increased risk of violence.

Many children are now hidden from an army of mandated reporters who would have protected them:  teachers, doctors, dentists, and even child protective service professionals. Many states have sidelined child protective service workers and have failed to provide personal protective equipment to ensure our child welfare professionals can be in contact with our most at-risk youth.

The COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted serious problems for vulnerable children. But timely action by Congress can help reduce their risk for violence and keep kids safe. I believe that our response to COVID-19 must include resources to help protect kids, prevent violence, and provide services to help abused children heal and seek justice. 

Thank you.
