Let’s Stand Up for Children!

Asheville was honored last month by the presence of Marian Wright Edelman, dsc_0288-1100x733Founder of the Children’s Defense Fund (CDF), who spoke on the issue of child poverty at an event organized by Pisgah Legal Services. The Children’s Defense Fund is a non-profit child advocacy organization that has worked relentlessly for more than 40 years to ensure a level playing field for all children. CDF advocates nationwide on behalf of children to ensure children are always a number one priority. A recent visit to the website of the Children’s Defense Fund led to an exciting discovery. A wonderful article about Edelman’s visit, published in our own Mountain Xpress newspaper, was featured rather prominently.  Please check it out for yourself and enjoy!
