Senator Robert Menendez is joined by the National Latino Children’s Institute (NLCI) and Hispanic youth from around the country to commemorate "El Día de los Niños" --Celebrating Our Youth-- which is observed on April 30. To recognize this special day, Senators Menendez, Orrin Hatch (R-UT), and Bob Casey (D-PA) also introduced a resolution to mark the celebration and declare it a national holiday. During the event, Menendez highlighted the importance of giving children the tools they need to be successful, including quality early education, adequate health care and proper nutrition. After concluding his remarks, Senator Menendez read a story to children from the DC area and was given an award by a student from New Jersey for his work on behalf of our nation’s youth.
