Across the world and in ways both subtle and direct, nothing short of war is being waged against children. All too frequently children are victims of conventional warfare. Deprivations at home are less dramatic, but wars nonetheless. Children are the fastest-growing group to fall below the poverty line. More and more children are victims of gang-related violence. Increasing numbers of babies are born with drug dependencies or AIDS. Daily reports of child abuse and inadequacies in social services and education have become accepted realities. Teen suicides are rising. The result is children at risk and dyingevery day. These poster will inform and provoke, and their message is clear: Our actions can make a difference.
