The 2018 Colorado Children’s Caucus — a series of seminars briefing state lawmakers on issues likes child abuse and neglect and children’s homelessness — comes to the Capitol starting Monday, Feb. 12.
Hosted by the Rocky Mountain Children’s Law Center and sponsored by Noble Energy, the caucus bills itself as, “a forum for all members of the Colorado General Assembly to discuss the challenges facing Colorado youth and work together to develop policy recommendations to strengthen families and improve the lives of children.”
A press announcement Thursday laid out the weeks-long agenda, with sessions held over a series of Mondays during the legislature. The sessions cover topics ranging from, “The Plight of Youth who are Homeless,” to “Child Care as a Two-Generation Prevention Strategy,” to “Poverty and Child Welfare in Colorado: Where Can We Go From Here?”
As noted in the press announcement, those interested can RSVP to Jeremy Jones at firstname.lastname@example.org by Wednesday, February 7. For a more in-depth look at the full agenda, here’s the link again.
