Things you can do right now
You have the power to make things better for our children right now -- and your partners in the For Our Future campaign will help you do it. It doesn't have to take a lot of time or any money, just the choice to do something.
For example, did you know that one of the most powerful things you can do is simply to organize a neighborhood block party? When people in a neighborhood know each other, that neighborhood is safer.

- Organize a block party
- Organize a neighborhood clean-up
- Start a children's reading group
- Identify and fix a neighborhood problem (such as a streetlight)
