We did it! It’s time to CELEBRATE! After months of work and thousands of calls, emails and tweets from advocates like you, the United States Congress has passed the Every Kid Outdoors Act!
thumbnail_alt_text===Every Kid Outdoors Act Passes
The Every Kid Outdoors Act ensures that a program at the Department of Interior, which gives fourth grade children and up to 3 accompanying adults free access to our national parks and lands continues. This great program creates opportunities for children and families to get moving and get outside in a fun, healthy environment and can help combat major health problems that stem from inactivity.
The bill will now head to the Oval Office to await the President’s signature before it becomes law.
This would not have been possible without your efforts and serves as further proof that with a strong, unified voice, grassroots advocacy is a powerful tool for change.
Now it’s time to pat yourself on the back and celebrate a great win!
Thank you for all that you do.
