Children's Budget Summit 2020
2020 has delivered an unprecedented public health emergency and an economic crisis that has disrupted every facet of the lives of children and families. More than ever before, the importance of prioritizing children in federal budget decisions has become crystal clear.
We hope you will join us for our first virtual Children's Budget Summit where we will release and discuss the findings in this year's Children’s Budget book — and hear directly from Congressional leaders who will be responsible for the next federal budget. And — for the first time ever — the Children's Budget book includes international spending on children in addition to tracking federal investments in more than 200 domestic programs.
Featured speakers include:
- Bruce Lesley, President, First Focus on Children
- Senator Sherrod Brown (D-OH)
- Senator Patty Murray (D-WA)
- Senator Michael Bennet (D-CO)
- Senator Lisa Murkowski (R-AK)
- Representative Ben Ray Luján (D-NM)
- ...more to be added soon!
Plus! All attendees will receive a virtual copy of this year's Children's Budget book, which captures and analyzes historical funding data and spending trends across a wide range of policy areas — including child welfare, child care, education, health, housing, income support, nutrition, and more.
Please RSVP as soon as possible to reserve your virtual seat.
