Over 200 children’s book writers and illustrators, led by National Artist for Literature Virgilio Almario and illustrator Robert Alejandro, have endorsed Vice President Leni Robredo and Senator Kiko Pangilinan for the highest positions in the country, in the hope that our children will be given a chance at a better tomorrow.

“Sa bawat kuwentong isinusulat, bawat ilustrasyong iginuguhit, at bawat palabas na itinatanghal, isinasapuso naming mga manlilikha at alagad ng sining ang adhikain na ang inaalayan namin ng aming mga likha—ang mga kabataan ay magkaroon ng matiwasay at maunlad na buhay at kinabukasan,” the statement read.

The artists said they believe that under a Robredo presidency, every child will be taken care of, given a good education, and be given the opportunity to dream.

“Sa gobyernong tapat nina Robredo at Pangilinan, ang bawat bata ay malayang mangarap at malaya ring mabibigyan ng pagkakataon na matupad ang mga pangarap na iyon,” the statement read.

The children’s literature creators also called on parents, caregivers, and other elders to vote for what is right for the future of our nation’s children.

“Nasisiguro namin na sa kanilang tapat na pamumuno, kulay rosas ang naghihintay na bukas ng bawat kabataang Filipino,” the artists said. [END]
