Children take over Senate session

FOR EVERY CHILD, A VOICE: Twenty-seven children visit the Senate and played senators for a few hours.

Twenty-seven children from across the country played senators for a few hours as part of the celebration of the World Children Month Thursday, November 23, 2017. The children, who held a mock Senate session, voiced their concerns on sexual exploitation, teenage pregnancy and school bullying.
