Informational Hearing on Community Efforts to Strengthen Families
MADISON – The Wisconsin Legislative Children’s Caucus will be hosting the first of five informational hearings on community efforts to strengthen families this Monday, March 13th in Milwaukee.
Founded in 2015, the Legislative Children’s Caucus is a bi-partisan group with the purpose of cultivating a legislature dedicated to advancing promising, evidence-informed public policy that improves the life of every Wisconsin child. Sen. LaTonya Johnson (D-Milwaukee) serves as a co-chair of the caucus alongside Rep. Joan Ballweg (R-Markesan), Sen. Alberta Darling (R-River Hills), and Rep. Jill Billings (D-La Crosse).
The informational hearings will feature local invited speakers who focus on primary prevention of child abuse and neglect and serve at-risk families. The Legislative Children’s Caucus elected to hold hearings throughout Wisconsin to facilitate learning between state legislators and the local community partners who implement evidence-based practices to address child abuse and neglect. These hearings will be held throughout the month of March in La Crosse, Milwaukee, Green Bay, Stevens Point, and Rice Lake.
