Help us make Georgia the 2nd State with March 21st as Single Parents Day!
According to the U.S. Census Bureau about 12 million single parents families in 2014, more than 80% were headed by single mothers.
Currently 1 in 4 children under the age of 18 around 17.4 million are being raised without a father and nearly half (45%) live below the poverty line.
The idea of Single Parents Day was created in 1984 under the administration of President Ronald Regan. Each state has to elect March 21st as Single Parents Day.
Its a day set aside to honor and applaud the hard work single parents do each and every day in raising their children.

Clayton County 2016
