Women of Faith for the 1,000 Days Movement

The 1,000 days from pregnancy through a child’s second birthday are the most crucial for a child’s development. But many women around the world don’t have access to proper nutrition for themselves or their children. Without adequate nutrition during this critical period, children suffer permanent cognitive and physical delays. Out of a deep sense of call, women of faith have joined together to support the international Scaling Up Nutrition (SUN) movement for better nutrition in the 1,000 day window.

Take Action: Reps. Debbie Wasserman Shultz (D-FL) and Mario Diaz-Balart (R-FL) have introduced H. Res. 254: Recognizing the Importance of U.S. Leadership in Addressing Global Maternal and Child Nutrition. Learn how you can help get it passed.
