At its 25th anniversary gala, the Alliance for Children's Rights raised more than 1.5 million dollars to provide educational and legal resources to impoverished children or those in foster care. Golden-Globe nominated "This is Us" stars, Mandy Moore and Chrissy Metz, hosted the event and weren't shy to note parallels between the themes explored on their NBC show and the Alliance's work.
Moore explained, “The plot of our show is actually drawn from real-life circumstances of generations of family members.
Metz continued, “And like our show, the families that we’re honoring today make constant sacrifices for the love of their children."
According to its website, the Alliance works to provide free legal services, education and training to vulnerable children. Its staff and pro bono attorneys champion policy reform, such as expediting adoptions, securing medical coverage and therapies, obtaining services for children with learning and/or behavioral issues, as well as assisting youth transition from foster care to independent adulthood.
