White House Conference House Bill Filed

Get Your Rep.rentative to Cosponsor Today!

Today Congressman Chaka Fattah (D-PA) and Congressman Jon Porter (R-NV) took the first step in making a White House Conference on Children and Youth a reality.

Legislation to convene a White House Conference on Children and Youth was filed today by Congressman Fattah and Congressman Porter. This bipartisan bill would create a two-year event that will focus on child welfare issues and challenges. CWLA has been tirelessly working with Congress to file legislation that will convene a long overdue White House Conference on Children and Youth. That day has finally come.


Help CWLA and the sponsors of this bill make this a reality! Join CWLA on Capitol Hill to tell members of Congress to co-sponsor and support HR 5461. Hundreds of CWLA members and others will be convening on Capitol Hill on Tuesday, February 26 for Advocacy Day during CWLA's national conference.

If you cannot attend Advocacy Day, call your member of Congress today and ask them to co-sponsor this monumental legislation!

Ask your Representative to co-sponsor and support the White House Conference legislation (HR 5461).
Tell them the time has come for this country to again focus national attention on our children, something that hasn't been done in almost 40 years.
