Children's Budget Summit

Date: July 14, 2010

Time: 9:00 AM - 3:15 PM

Location:
National Press Club, Holeman Lounge
529 14th Street NW
Washington, District of Columbia 20045

For too long children have been an afterthought in federal budget and policymaking. In fact, spending on children makes up less than ten percent of the entire non-defense federal budget. This July, First Focus will host the second national Children’s Budget Summit, in an effort to galvanize advocates, the media, and the public to take action that will address this growing problem.

Speakers at the event will include Dr. Drew Westen, who will discuss public opinion research on effective language for communicating on children’s issues. In addition, the event will feature a variety of experts presenting new research on children in the federal budget, including Children’s Budget 2010 and Kids' Share, as well as a panel discussion with state-based child advocates from across the nation.
