The Launch of the Aspen Institute’s Family Call To Action (VIDEO)

In April I was part of the Aspen Institute’s Launch of the Youth and Family Call to Actions. I was on a panel with Gov. Terry McAuliffe and members of the Youth Commission and another Parent Panel member, Diana Prichard. Below is the video of the Call to Action.

The day commenced with Youth Commissioners sharing moments of “Imagine if…” 

“Imagine if every child went to school feeling safe and valued and welcome. ”

The event was moderated by Tim Shriver, who serves as Commission Co-Chair.

The first panel was moderated by Gov. McAuliffe. The Youth Commissioners were Grace Dolan-Sandrino and Eric Guerci. The parent panelists were Diana Prichard and yours truly. We outlined our vision for social emotional and academic development in schools.
