Legislation for a White House Conference has been Filed (HR 618 & S. 938)!

Congressman Chaka Fattah (D-PA) and Congressman Todd Platts (R-PA) have re-introduced HR 618 in the House of Representatives and Senator Mary Landrieu (D-LA) and Senator Richard Burr (R-NC) have reintroduced S 938 in the Senate to make a White House Conference on Children and Youth a reality.

Legislation to convene a White House Conference on Children and Youth was filed by Congressman Fattah and Congressman Platts and Senator Landrieu and Senator Burr. 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! Tell your members of Congress to co-sponsor and support HR 618 in the House of Representatives and S 938 in the Senate. Hundreds of CWLA members and others convened on Capitol Hill on Tuesday, February 26 for Advocacy Day during CWLA's national conference where the message was spread loud and clear. Help us follow-up with Congress to make sure that they sign-on as co-sponsors right away!
  • Ask your Representative to co-sponsor and support the White House Conference legislation (HR 618).

  • Ask your Senator to co-sponsor and support the White House Conference legislation (S 938).

  • 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.
