What the 2022 Midterms Mean for Kids 

This November, voters around the country chose to dedicate millions of dollars to children’s programs and services. In our new round-up of the election results, we highlight three communities and one state that created new children’s funds or renewed an existing fund.

For a final insider's look at what the November elections mean for kids, listen to this new interview that our strategy director Olivia Allen conducted with The Imprint.
