Can D.C. Work for All Teens

Over 500 people registered for DC Campaign’s first conference series, End the War on Children, with Mary’s Center, Young Women’s Project and Consortium for Child Welfare joining us to co-sponsor the events. We’ve been live streaming our conferences and posting the sessions on DC Campaign’s Facebook page to reach more people.

Can D.C. Work for All Teens? is the 2019-2020 conference series theme. So far, we’ve covered, Confidentiality, Mandatory Reporting, Re-Imagining School Based Health and The Trauma of Child Poverty. 

We’re deeply grateful to the organizations who’ve shared their experts as speakers and panelists: Urban Institute, The Love More Movement, DC Fiscal Policy Institute, Child Trends, School-Based Health Alliance, DC Health, Mary’s Center, Children’s National Health System, Department of Pediatrics/George Washington University, MedStar Georgetown University Hospital, School Health Center at Anacostia Senior High School, National Health Law Program/Washington, D.C. office, AmeriHealth Caritas/District of Columbia, LIFT-DC, D.C. Office of the Attorney General, D.C. Child and Family Services Agency/Child Welfare Training Academy and Children’s Law Center.
