LEGISLATIVE ALERT

3/15/2010

Make the White House Conference on Children and Youth Happen!

For the White House Conference on Children and Youth to become a reality the President and Congress will have to act on legislation (HR 618 & S 938)!

April is Prevent Child Abuse Month. To recognize this month we are building the momentum to reconvene the White House Conference on Children and Youth. We ask CWLA members to take two immediate actions with this e-mail and then to join us in an on-going campaign throughout the month of April.

What CWLA members can do now:

  • Sign-on to the call for the White House Conference on Children and Youth as an agency joining more than 800 other organizations. Not all CWLA agencies have signed on, so join us today!

  • Sign-on to the call for a White House Conference as an individual joining more than 1000 others.


What CWLA members can do in April:

  • Join the White House Conference 4-Weeks-in-April Campaign


    • Week 1 (April 5) CALL your House Representative

    • Week 2 (April 12) SEND a post card (and ask others) to the President asking him to endorse and sign into law HR 618/S 938 and then issue the call for a White House Conference on Children and Youth (target mailing date is April 15). You can order postcards by emailing us at govaffairs@cwla.org (the first 25 postcards are free for CWLA members).

    • Week 3 (April 19) URGE your State Legislature to pass a state resolution in support of a White House Conference on Children and Youth

    • Week 4 (April 26) CALL your 2 U.S. Senators

We will be sending out alerts every week in April reminding you of each of these actions, but YOU CAN DO MORE! Click on the following link (http://www.cwla.org/advocacy/WHC10items.pdf) and see how many of the ten action steps you and your agency can take part in.

Thank you for making children a national priority by taking these steps to help reconvene the White House Conference on Children and Youth.
CWLA Technological Transition

CWLA is in the process of changing e-newsletter service providers, and as a result we may have some distribution challenges in the next few weeks. We encourage you to visit us on the web (http://www.cwla.org/advocacy/alerts.htm) for alerts and updates during this transition. This is also a great opportunity to connect with us via Facebook or Twitter for daily updates. Become a fan on our Facebook page (http://www.facebook.com/pages/Child-Welfare-League-of-America-CWLA/340491215087) or follow us on Twitter (http://twitter.com/cwlaupdates). Thanks for bearing with us!
