Description

Save the Children Action Network – ISU Chapter (SCAN-ISU) is a bipartisan political action organization that engages the campus community on policy issues affecting kids – mainly early childhood education in the United States and maternal and newborn child survival internationally. SCAN-ISU provides a unique opportunity for students to raise their voices in support of kids by engaging in the political process. We seek to encourage individual voice development and participation 'across the aisle' on issues affecting children by participating in advocacy actions such as petition collections and deliveries, writing letters to the editors of local newspapers and making phone calls to our representatives in support of effective programs to benefit children. We also spread awareness about our two core issues through education and outreach events on and off campus.
