Support a White House Conference on Children and Youth

CWLA Calls on the New President to Convene White House Conference on Children and Youth in 2010

White House Conference on Children and Youth in 2010 Use the form at the bottom of this page to sign on to this campaign.

CWLA launched the Campaign for a White House Conference on Children and Youth to take place in 2010. This White House Conference on Children and Youth would be the first since 1970. Three decades have passed without the White House bringing the focus of the nation to examine the state of our children. CWLA is calling on Congress to authorize this conference so that the next President will convene a conference in 2010. We must once again use the power of the White House to organize a national conference on the welfare of our children to establish national goals for improvement in the subsequent ten years.

The fundamental purpose of the 2010 White House Conference on Children and Youth is to fulfill the nation's need for an overall vision in child welfare and to refocus an inspired understanding of the many facts we have at our disposal to put them into practice at this critical juncture. There has never before been the summation of knowledge and experience as what now lies before the 2010 conference. Now is the time to bring together the years of research and expertise that will make a difference in the lives of children if focused upon nationally.

A White House conference on Children and Youth is needed to focus the attention of the nation on the children who, after all, are our responsibility. The conference will examine the greatest needs and set the country on a path to reform. The commitment of the President and the power of the White House is needed to once again make vulnerable children a national priority and point the way to significant reform and improvements.

As our first step in making this conference a reality, we are calling on our members and national partners to join with us in this effort.
