Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand released her “Family Bill of Rights” Wednesday morning, a policy proposal meant to make raising children safer and more affordable.

The presidential candidate said that passing the plan through Congress would be the “priority” of her administration within its first one hundred days. The plan is broken into five “fundamental rights” that would “dramatically transform child’s health, safety, and future academic success,” according to a press release.

Focusing on various aspects of childcare up to kindergarten, Gillibrand said her plan “levels the playing field starting at birth” for children and parents.
