On March 5th Every Child Matters Education Fund and Colors of Life have launched their 2012 National Exhibition Tour at Children’s Home Society of Florida in West Palm Beach. The exhibition, hosted locally by the YWCA of Palm Beach County, was part of a non-partisan public education campaign to help raise the visibility of children’s needs during the 2012 election cycle.
Prompted by a surge in child poverty and declines in other child well-being indicators, the two national organizations have decided to embark on a nationwide tour that is using art and history to open people’s hearts and minds to the challenges facing America’s children. The evocative exhibit is made up of the finalist photographs of children from the 2011 Colors of Life international photo competition and a display of eleven past presidents who helped our nation’s children.
The following stops of the National Exhibition Tour will take place in Texas and Colorado.
