Domestic policy expert Cassandra Butts to host discussions in Rochester, Laconia

MANCHESTER , NH—Senator Barack Obama’s New Hampshire campaign announced today that New Hampshire Women for Obama will host ten roundtables over the next three days to discuss Obama’s plan to reclaim the American Dream. The roundtables will bring working women together to discuss Obama’s proposals to ease the difficulties of work-family balance.

In a major speech today, Obama will offer key new proposals to help families thrive at a time when more women have entered the workforce, working hours have grown longer, and manyworkers are struggling to care for aging parents. Among other measures, Obama’s plan calls for doubling our investment in after-school programs, expanding the Child and Dependent Tax Credit and the Family and Medical Leave Act, and expanding flexible work arrangements.

Two of the ten roundtables—in Rochester on Thursday and in Laconia on Friday—will be hosted by Cassandra Butts, law school classmate of Obama and Senior Vice President for Domestic Policy at the Center for American Progress.

The roundtables are open to the press. To attend, or for more information, please call Marti Adams at (603) 668-2008.
