Answering the Call to Action

"This is not a talk conference. It is an act conference. It is not a problem wallowing, handwringing conference. It is a strategic problem-solving conference. It is not just a conference of inspiring and cutting edge speeches. It is a conference for sharing and learning about effective community efforts and models and steps you can take to implement them and take them to scale and sustainability in your communities, schools, congregations, cities, and states ..." Marian Wright Edelman

Dear Friend,

Never before have our children needed us so greatly to act on their behalf. One in five children is poor and children are our nation's poorest age group. American education, once the envy of the world, is in dire straits with more than 60 percent of fourth, eighth and 12th grade public school students reading or computing below grade level. For Black and Hispanic children, it is nearly 80 percent or more.

Organize your community and your organization to respond by forming a Children's Action Team. Register five attendees to join us for our National Conference and the sixth registration is on us.

Your biggest concern for children -- whether it is education, juvenile justice, racial inequality, economic inequality, the budget, healthcare and nutrition, violence, or parent empowerment -- will be a major topic at our national conference in Cincinnati this summer. Check out the rich array of workshops and mini-plenaries we have planned and share them with those in your network you think would be interested in forming a Children's Action Team!

Let others in your area know you want to form a Children's Action Team!

Complete this brief survey and we'll do our best to connect you with others in your area who are either registered or considering registering and are interested in building a team for children.

Thank you for answering the call to action for our children and for helping us spread the word about CDF's National "ACT" Conference.
