Please join us first for dinner at 5:30 at the Mayflower Hotel, Edgar Bar and restaurant--lobby level  (moderately priced). Diagonally across 17th Street from the Sumner School

Our year opens with a discussion of  advocacy videos on raising children in poverty. LTG Associates recently completed the development of two video ethnographies for The California Department of Health Care Services (DHCS).  The two video ethnographies and a library of video clips are being used by DHCS for education and advocacy focused to law makers, policy makers, service developers and implementers, and students of social services and sciences. “Raising Up the Children” brings the voices and stories of low-income parents working to raise fully healthy children.  The video will be shown and then there will be an opportunity for discussion with the presenters.
