Forum Testifies For Tennessee Children and Youth Resource Mapping Bill

As a part of the Ready by 21 national partnership agreement between the Forum and the National Conference of State Legislatures, the Forum agrees to support state legislators as they work to implement a Ready by 21 approach in their states. At the request of Senator Diane Black, Elizabeth Gaines traveled to Nashville Tennessee to provide testimony on two bills moving through their statehouse related to mapping the public resources for children and youth. In addition to providing testimony to the House and Senate Committees, Elizabeth met with key policymakers from the relevant finance committees and worked with the staff of the Commission on Children and Families and the Select Committee on Children and Youth.
