284. Early Childhood Interrupted: The Effect of Disasters, Natural or Otherwise, on Vulnerable Children and Families

Date: Tuesday July 17, 2018
Time: 8:00 AM - 10:00 AM
Location: Conference 2

Disaster can strike with or without warning and comes in many forms: hurricanes, earthquakes, wildfires, mass shootings, toxic water, and much more. Young children and families in marginalized communities are particularly vulnerable to both pending disaster and its aftermath. Join the discussion and 'call to action' with diverse humanitarian response teams and federal/state/local child advocates who support preparation, recovery, and equitable outcomes for young children and families when disaster strikes. 

Presenters: Pamela Hollingsworth, Early Learning Coalition of Miami-Dade/Monroe; Byron Mason, US Department of Health and Human Services; Andrew Roszak, Child Care Aware of America; Sarah Thompson, Save the Children
