    Share |
    TX: The Children’s Defense Fund – Texas (CDF-TX) published a multi-faith outreach toolkit for Texas Faith Communities titled In Pursuit of Justice for Texas Children. The toolkit includes key facts about children’s health in Texas, a state where 1.2 million children are uninsured and more than half of these children are eligible for coverage. The toolkit features resources to help congregations spread the word about children’s health coverage, including sample success stories, newsletter articles, bulletins, and social media posts. The toolkit’s Welcome Letter highlights that the communities’ “faiths call on us to help the least among us, and especially to protect children.”
