Violence and Poverty in the Northern Triangle
The Central American Women and Children Protection Act
Potential Impact on Communities, Women and Children
Today, U.S. aid to the Northern Triangle is 0.035% of the federal budget, a 30% decrease in funding. Multiple senators and representatives from both parties continue to speak out against cuts to Central American programs. The Central American Women and Children Protection Act has the potential to remake the impact of the Alliance for Prosperity through increased funding for criminal justice reform, support services and youth programs in the most vulnerable communities.
