KID’s mission is to promote the development of safer products, advocate for children and educate the public, especially parents and caregivers, about dangerous children’s products.
To fulfill its mission, KID:
- Reaches out to parents, caregivers, service providers and others through workshops on dangerous children’s products, media coverage, speaking engagements, social media and web presence and printed materials;
- Serves as a watchdog on regulatory agencies and manufacturers to assure safe children’s products and advocates for stronger protections for our most vulnerable consumers;
- Encourages designers and engineers to build safety into each product and promotes the development of the safest products possible for our children.
KID’s goal is to create a secure environment for children by ensuring that safer products are manufactured, improving recall effectiveness, and encouraging parents and caregivers to remove dangerous or recalled products from homes and childcare facilities.
