    Our Children This Week

    The Children's Movement of Fresno is a trusted and reliable source of information in our community. Monitoring the wide range of issues that affect Fresno County’s children and families, and making that information readily available on a regular basis is an important component of our work. Our Children This Week (OCTW) will provide access to local, state and national news and policy information as well as meeting agendas for local decision making bodies. All this, each week, directly to your inbox.

    Please note, TCM is not taking a position on the merits of specific stories or legislation. The intent is to keep our child advocacy partners up-to-date on important news, public policy efforts and agenda items.
