Americans recognize Mother’s Day, Father’s Day... so why not a national Children’s Day? A day that revives, celebrates, and commits to our children and their future. Committments cards; along with local, state, and national recognition are all part of this day... a day that has deep historical roots in America.

We the People banner
WE PETITION THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION TO:

Have the President proclaim the second Sunday in June (June 14, 2015) as “Children’s Day” in the United States.

Children’s Day observations in the United States predate both Mother’s and Father’s Day. This day to celebrate children dates from the 1860s and earlier.

Since 2007, the governor of Illinois has proclaimed “Children’s Day” on the second Sunday in June. Also such cities as Aurora, Ill.; Batavia, Ill.; Fort Collins, Colo.; Vancouver, Wash.;and other American cities have issued proclamations.

Chase’s Calendar of Events cites Children’s Sunday and notes that The Commonwealth of Massachusetts issues an annual proclamation.

Numerous churches and denominations currently observe the second Sunday in June including the African Methodist Episcopal Church, African Methodist Episcopal Zion Church, and the Christian Methodist Episcopal Church.
