Clothing Insecurity: The Hidden Child Poverty Crisis
Location: Boulevard C (2nd Floor)
School attendance is key to achievement, graduation and beyond, but research shows clothing insecurity is among the primary reasons children don’t attend school. Government and private programs work to address food and housing insecurity, but only a few address the lack of appropriate and adequate clothing. Learn about this crisis, grassroots movements to address the challenge and raise its profile, and approaches to move the needle.
