This morning, Peter Bearse will be attending a breakfast meeting of the New Hampshire Children's Trust Fund (NHCTF), for business leaders, on "Investing in Policies and Programs that Work for Children and Their Families" -- to build supportive programs and policies for families and children.
The lead presentation will be provided by Jack Levine, founder of 4Generations Institute in Tallahassee, FL. Part of this will be about the federal Family and Medical Leave Act. Levine was quoted by the NH Sunday News as saying: "With nearly 70% of all children living in families with either two parents or a single parent working out of the home, special attention to this...reality is needed for the sake of family well-being."
Levine will also be speaking in support of NHCTF's "Action: Powering Prevention" program, which stresses the value of preventive actions when job and family commitments conflict -- "programs for children, parent leadership, grandparent activism and dignified services for elders."
