Advocacy Call to Action — Child Protection Improvements Act
The American Camp Association and more than twenty other youth development partners have been working to close a gaping hole in federal law that prevents camps and other youth-serving organizations from gaining access to federal criminal background checks on employees and volunteers.
The bipartisan Child Protection Improvements Act (S. 1362 and H.R. 3902) has just been reintroduced in both the Senate and the House of Representatives! We ask you to become an advocate and contact your legislators to urge their support of this critical child protection bill. Advocacy is quick and easy! ACA has an online tool and sample messages so you can advocate in just a few minutes.
