Ending Child Poverty Now Release Registration

Join the Children’s Defense Fund for the release of a groundbreaking report that for the first time details how to end 60 percent of child poverty in America right now. By investing an additional 2 percent of the federal budget to expand existing programs and policies that increase employment, make work pay, and ensure children’s basic needs are met, 97 percent of poor children would benefit and 60 percent would be lifted out of poverty. Seventy-two percent of Black children, who suffer the highest poverty rates in America, would no longer be poor. The CDF report, Ending Child Poverty Now, lays out the real numbers: costs to implement the improvements to existing programs; tradeoffs that would pay for these improvements without raising the federal deficit; and the millions of children who would benefit.

When:              Wednesday January 28th, 10am

Where:             Children’s Defense Fund
                        25 E Street, NW
