We did it! πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰ Yesterday H.R.2408 Protecting Girls Access to Education in Vulnerable Settings Act passed in the U.S. House. This wouldn’t have been possible without all of your advocacy efforts. Thank you to @repstevechabot and @reprobinkelly for your leadership efforts on this bill. Next stop is the U.S. Senate! Learn more about the legislation by checking out the link in our bio. #HR2408 #withrefugees

Jerrine, 9, smiles as she picks out children’s books during a distribution at the Multipurpose Centre in St. John’s, capital of the island of Antigua. Books, clothes, shoes and other basic items are just some of the items needed by children and families displaced from Barbuda by Hurricane Irma.
Some 73,000 people in this area, including 20,000 children, are affected, and at least 132 schools have been damaged. You can support @unicefusa relief efforts for children in the #Caribbean and every donation counts.
