Kids in Common

The Santa Clara Voter’s Guide on Children’s Issues is Here!

Children can’t vote, so it is up to us to vote on their behalf.  Nearly 100 candidates for state, county, city council and school district offices participated in the guide by answering questions on important children’s issues.  Many thanks to the SCCOE, the LPC, Strong Start and SVCN for helping make this guide happen!

What is Kids in Common?

Kids in Common is that voice and challenges leaders and decision-makers in our community to act in best interest of our children. 

Kids in Common provides convening support for the Santa Clara County Children’s Agenda, a focused, integrated, project that utilizes data and research to inform decision-making, guide program improvement and drive results.
