The U.S. Child Poverty Action Group is a partnership of national, child-focused organizations dedicated to cutting child poverty in half within a decade. Recognizing the need for a national strategy to address child poverty in the U.S., members of the U.S. Child Poverty Action Group drafted Our Kids, Our Future, a compendium of cross-sector solutions to significantly reduce child poverty in the U.S.
The U.S. Child Poverty Action Group will be hosting a series of webinars over the coming months highlighting the policy solutions included in Our Kids, Our Future.
Please join us for the launch of this series, with our first webinar focusing on solutions to addressing early childhood poverty. Presentations will focus on the need for a universal paid family leave program in the U.S., policies to improve the economic security and well-being of early childhood educators and strengthening access to effective nutrition services for young children and families.
