2014 Assets Learning Conference

Advocating for Change: Expanding Children’s Savings in the Public Sector

Thursday, September 18th, 2014
10:15-11:30 AM

Room: Howard

Children’s savings initiatives have grown rapidly over the past several years, thanks in large part to support from public officials in places like Nevada, San Francisco and Cuyahoga County, Ohio. This session will focus on the opportunities and challenges for further adoption of children’s savings policies by elected and administrative policymakers. Officials and advocates from the federal, state and city levels will discuss the reasons they support children’s savings programs and share ideas for gaining additional support from public officials across the political spectrum.
