      Childrens Budget Summit 2019

      First Focus on Children is proud to announce the release of Children's Budget 2019, which captures and analyzes historical funding data and spending trends across a wide range of policy areas including child welfare, early childhood, education, health, housing, income support, nutrition, safety and training tracking federal investments in more than 200 different programs. Please join us as we discuss this year's findings, the need for Congress to support a comprehensive approach to prioritizing children in federal budget decisions, and hear from a communications expert giving a presentation on how to make children a greater priority in policymaking. FEATURED SPEAKERS Bruce Lesley, President, First Focus on Children Dr. Manuel Pastor, Distinguished Professor of Sociology and American Studies & Ethnicity at the University of Southern California Marcus Littles, Founder and Senior Partner, Frontline Solutions Special remarks from Representative Deb Haaland (D-NM) KEYNOTE SPEAKER - DR. MANUEL PASTOR Dr. Manuel Pastor is a Distinguished Professor of Sociology and American Studies & Ethnicity at the University of Southern California. He currently directs the Program for Environmental and Regional Equity (PERE) at USC and USC's Center for the Study of Immigrant Integration (CSII). Pastor holds an economics Ph.D. from the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, and is the inaugural holder of the Turpanjian Chair in Civil Society and Social Change at USC. Pastor’s research has generally focused on issues of the economic, environmental and social conditions facing low-income urban communities – and the social movements seeking to change those realities. His current research culminates in his latest book, State of Resistance: What California's Dizzying Descent and Remarkable Resurgence Means for America's Future. Pastor's previous book, Equity, Growth, and Community: What the Nation Can Learn from America's Metro Areas, co-authored with Chris Benner (UC Press 2015), argues how inequality stunts economic growth and how bringing together equity and growth requires concerted local action. Combining data, case studies, and narratives on multi-sector collaborations in 11 metro regions, the book offers a powerful prescription not just for metros but for our national challenges of slow job growth, rising economic inequality, and sharp political polarization. He also co-edited the book, Unsettled Americans: Metropolitan Context and Civic Leadership for Immigrant Integration with John Mollenkopf (Cornell University Press 2016), which offers a comparative study and detailed analyses of immigrant incorporation efforts across seven different U.S. metro regions.
