The Children’s Bill of Rights lists 9 rights that should be extended to all children in Nevada County.  Things like feeling safe in homes, schools and communities; having the basic essentials including nutritious food, housing, clothing and transportation;  access to health and dental care;  be respected and valued as individuals and have a voice in matters that may affect them.

Members of the Community Support Network were all wearing green tee shirts with the question,  How are the Children? printed on them. Dunckel says it’s a traditional greeting passed down by the African tribe, the Masai.
