Community Advocates in Action and Women Leading Change Now are looking to assist in building momentum for the Summit on Working Families that will be hosted by the White House, the Center for American Progress, and the U.S. Department of Labor in Washington D.C. on June 23, 2014.
The June 14 round table discussions will open dialogues to explore how all sectors can work together on key issues facing women and workers with families and the businesses that want to recruit and retain them. The conversations from the June 14 round table and the June 23 White House Summit on Working Families will shape the agenda of the Women Leading Change Now & Community Advocates in Action Working Families Summit on August 9 in Atlanta.
Women Leading Change Now and Community Advocates in Action will host a Working Families Summit to take place in Atlanta, GA and will be live streamed to over 16 states that will host hot-spots giving participants an opportunity to voice their local concerns.
These concerns along with issues that arise from the August 9 Summit will be brought to The White House, the U.S. Department of Labor’s Women’s Bureau, and the Center for American progress to assist in determining how Women Leading Change Now and Community Advocates in Action can best contribute, locally and nationally, to the campaign for economic security and opportunity for hardworking women and families, and bring this information back to all states and communities.
The Georgia Family Partnership Connection, a statewide network of 159 county collaborative organizations will be instrumental in connecting and communicating information to working families in Georgia. Partnerships and collaborative of this magnitude are being sought for participation in other states in the U.S.
