Building Economic Security for Families in Crisis through Education, Employment and Childcare
A Congressional Briefing on TANF Reauthorization
Friday, Dec. 2, 2011 – 2:30pm-4pm
Congressional Auditorium - Capitol Visitor Center
In the coming year, Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF), the legislation that created welfare reform, will be reauthorized. Hear from the most important stakeholders in this process – low-income single mothers - about how to strengthen our nation’s safety net, while creating pathways out of poverty for low-income women and their families.
Also hear from Elizabeth Lower-Basch of the Center for Law and Social Policy, Dr. Sheila Katz with Sonoma State University, and Dr. Kevin Miller of the Institute for Women’s Policy Research as they share their latest research on the impact of postsecondary education and training and child care on the economic and educational prospects of low-income women with children.
Hosted by Women for Economic Justice (WEJ)
A national network of grassroots, low-income women-led organizations working to end poverty under TANF reauthorization and to achieve economic justice for low-income women, their families, and communities.
