The Build Back Better Act is poised to deliver highquality child care that all families can afford, universal access to preschool for all 3- and 4-year-olds, lower costs for higher education so that every child has an equal footing and opportunity to succeed, historic tax cuts for working families raising children, the largest expansion of affordable health care coverage since the Affordable Care Act, and the largest investment to fight climate change in American history.

                Proclamation 10312 of November 19, 2021

                
National Child's Day, 2021

                By the President of the United States of America

                A Proclamation

                Our Nation's children are the kite strings that hold 
                our national ambitions aloft--and it is our shared 
                responsibility to make sure that they have every 
                opportunity to thrive. On National Child's Day, we 
                recommit ourselves to ensuring that every child in 
                America has a fair shot at a bright future, regardless 
                of the gender, race, ethnicity, or the zip code they 
                are born into.

                To support our Nation's children, it is imperative that 
                we work to deliver equal access to quality child care 
                and education, health care, good jobs with dignity, and 
                a clean planet. That is why I am working with the 
                Congress to pass my Administration's Build Back Better 
                plan--a transformative investment in children, 
                families, climate resilience, and the foundations of 
                our economy. The Build Back Better Act is poised to 
                deliver high-quality child care that all families can 
                afford, universal access to preschool for all 3- and 4-
                year-olds, lower costs for higher education so that 
                every child has an equal footing and opportunity to 
                succeed, historic tax cuts for working families raising 
                children, the largest expansion of affordable health 
                care coverage since the Affordable Care Act, and the 
                largest investment to fight climate change in American 
                history.

                This landmark legislation will help ensure that every 
                child has a safer and healthier upbringing. It eases 
                the cost burden of raising a family--delivering a tax 
                cut directly into the pockets of working parents. It 
                will help America once again set the pace around the 
                world when it comes to educational attainment, 
                reversing generations of underinvestment in our 
                children's development and care. It will help us cut 
                greenhouse gas emissions and reduce pollution so that 
                our children can breathe clean air. With the Bipartisan 
                Infrastructure Act--we will also deliver high-speed 
                internet access to every American household and replace 
                our Nation's lead water pipes so that every child can 
                drink clean water at home and at school. I will also 
                continue to make the case for establishing a paid 
                family and medical leave program so no worker has to 
                make the impossible choice between work and caring for 
                themselves or a family member.

                These historic bills build on the foundation we laid 
                with the American Rescue Plan, which has set us on a 
                course to reduce child poverty in America by nearly 
                half. The law continues to deliver critical resources 
                that have allowed our Nation's children to safely 
                return to the classroom, and it provides essential 
                tools to address the mental health needs of our 
                children and much-needed relief to families to improve 
                maternal and child health care.

                We owe every child the opportunity to dream and 
                flourish, supported by adults helping to make their 
                dreams a reality. On National Child's Day, we reaffirm 
                our commitment to uplift the children in our lives and 
                in our communities. Their future is our future, and our 
                Nation's success tomorrow relies on the care and 
                investment we provide for our children today.

                NOW, THEREFORE, I, JOSEPH R. BIDEN JR., President of 
                the United States of America, by virtue of the 
                authority vested in me by the Constitution and the laws 
                of the United States, do hereby proclaim November 20, 
                2021,

[[Page 66916]]

                as National Child's Day. I call upon all government 
                officials, educators, volunteers, and all the people of 
                the United States of America to observe this day with 
                appropriate programs, ceremonies, and activities.

                IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand this 
                nineteenth day of November, in the year of our Lord two 
                thousand twenty-one, and of the Independence of the 
                United States of America the two hundred and forty-
                sixth.
