Every Child By Two is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. Your contribution to Every Child By Two is tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law.

Every Child By Two's cofounders Rosalynn Carter and Betty Bumpers have been working to enact pro-immunization policies since the 1970s when their husbands served as governors of Georgia and Arkansas. We need your voices to ensure that policies continue to support healthy communities.
As the First Lady of the United States Rosalynn joined with Betty (whose husband had become a U.S. Senator) to pass laws mandating school-age vaccination requirements in every state. These same laws are in jeopardy in many states, where legislation is being introduced to make it easier to exempt children from vaccines for schools...placing all children at risk.
State and local legislators and the U.S. Congress often become involved in immunization related legislation that can negatively or positively influence the health of our nation's citizens. In addition, ECBT is actively engaged in ensuring that Congress allocates ample funding to conduct vaccine activities here and abroad. As budgets continue to dwindle, legislators need to hear from constituents who agree that funding for vaccines is the most cost-effective health intervention known to mankind!
By becoming an ECBT Advocate we will stay in touch with you regarding issues that affect your community, issues where your voice can truly make a difference.

Share Your Story
Every Child By Two has long recognized the importance of partnering with local community news makers and reporters as well as educating at the local level on the topic of immunizations.
We actively cultivate relationships with local and national newspaper, magazine, radio and television contacts. We visit national parenting magazine editorial teams to educate them annually on immunization issues, offering them access to experts and families whose personal stories truly resonate with the public. ECBT prepares “timeless” immunization articles and stories, available to fill in available news space, particularly for local papers. We provide live experts for television and radio, speak at local and national immunization meetings, and offer our services to work with local leaders to help organize educational events.
Do you have expertise to share or a personal story to tell? You can make a difference in your local community when it comes to education of community members as well as making sure that your local news outlets are accurately reporting the facts about vaccines.
By signing up to become an ECBT Immunization Advocate, we will help guide you in reaching out to the community. We can help prepare your story, develop talking points, and prepare you for any event that seeks to ensure timely vaccinations!
Support Local Events
ECBT recognizes the vital importance of initiatives that strive to reduce the number of vaccine-preventable deaths in all age groups. We partner closely with numerous organizations that share our goal of protecting all children from vaccine preventable diseases.
There are many initiatives that you can become involved in to support local immunization efforts. Your health department, coalition or department of education may wish to hold events in schools and day care centers including seasonal flu awareness campaigns. Back to school awareness programs help get the message out that all children should be up-to-date on their immunizations prior to the first day of classes each year and back to school clinics help to get the children the shots they need to meet the school requirements for admission. Assisted living, adult day care, long term care, nursing homes, hospice care, and home care settings all benefit when you offer your expertise.
To get more involved in supporting local community events, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will be happy to connect you with our local contacts who coordinate these types of efforts.
In addition, by indicating your willingness to become an ECBT Advocate we will call upon you when we learn about events in your area as well as immunization issues that need to be addressed at your local level.
Join A Coalition
Coalitions exist in every state and can be invaluable resources when their goals are aligned with those of the CDC and state immunization programs.
Every Child By Two considers coalitions to be one of the greatest assets in assuring timely immunizations of children. In fact, our cofounder Betty Bumpers created one of the first immunization coalitions in Arkansas in the 1970s during her tenure as first lady - this strategy became a model that was used by the CDC nationwide.
Coalitions are most successful when made up of a broad base of committed individuals from the local community including parents, public health advocates, local businesses, policy-savvy individuals, marketing and media experts.
If you are interested in learning more about your local coalition please contact us at email@example.com so that we can provide you with contact information.
In addition, by indicating your willingness to become an ECBT Advocate we will stay in touch with you regarding ways to participate in building, maintaining and supporting coalitions across the United States.

Support The Science
As an organization Every Child By Two believes in and trusts the science behind vaccines and the vast array of safety systems in place to ensure the ongoing safety of vaccines. It is the basis on which we confidently promote vaccines.
Our website section on vaccine safety provides an overview of the scientific process that goes into developing a vaccine, licensing a vaccine, recommending vaccines, and the continuous monitoring for safety. ECBT serves on the National Vaccine Advisory Committee and attends the meetings of the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices where vaccine safety efforts are reviewed on a regular basis due to the paramount concern for ongoing safety of our nation's vaccines.
If you would like to get more involved in supporting the science behind vaccines, you will be helping ECBT in our enormous goal of educating the public about the evidence that vaccines remain safe and necessary. You can aid us in refuting inaccurate information among the media and online.
Please sign up as an ECBT Immunization Advocate. By indicating your willingness to contribute to our blog, Facebook page and answering website questions, you will be an invaluable resource to our organization.
