AFSCME Partnership with Child ID Program

CHILD ID ProgramEach year nearly a million children are abducted or run away and many are never returned to their families. That’s a staggering statistic and one that our union can help to reduce. AFSCME is partnering with the National Child Identification Program to make our children's lives safer.

Through the use of the child identification kit, a parent or guardian can dramatically increase the chances that a missing child will be located and safely returned. The kit gives law enforcement agencies up to 80 percent of the information they need to initiate an immediate search when time is of the essence.

In addition to receiving one free kit, AFSCME members will have the option of buying additional kits at the specially negotiated price of $4.95, half the usual cost.

The kits will arrive with the Fall issue of AFSCME WORKS magazine and include instructions for use. If we all take a few moments to protect our families, we can help bring every missing child home safely.
