First Lady Speaks at UNICEF Champions for Children Event

President and Mrs. Biden in New York for the United Nations General Assembly.

First Lady Jill Biden was the keynote speaker at the UNICEF event “Champions for Children: Child Rights at the Heart of the SDGs“ (Sustainable Development Goals) held in New York on Sunday.

The first lady stated, “Education is the key that unlocks the possibilities of the future. It changes lives.“

She said, “COVID and its aftermath have had a devasting impact on children’s learning. I know we all have been working hard to rebuild the systems that were broken, to bring divided communities back together, to put us on a path to a better, brighter future.“

The first lady continued, “Children are the smartest investment we can make in eliminating poverty, boosting economic growth, strengthening democracy, and promoting global peace and prosperity. This is why children must be at the center of the Sustainable Development Goals.“

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For the first lady as she advocates for children’s education and recovery from pandemic shutdowns.
  • For the president and administration officials as they support education initiatives.
