On November 18, members of Fight Crime: Invest in Kids stormed Capitol Hill to send an important message to Congress that professional home visitors are our essential partners in preventing crime by women and keeping them out of orange jumpsuits.

They delivered Fight Crime: Invest in Kids report, “Orange is Not Your Color,” and a letter signed by more than 1,000 police chiefs, sheriffs, prosecutors, and violence survivors from across the country urging Congress to renew the federal home visiting program known as the Maternal, Infant, and Early Childhood (MIECHV) Program.
