Children Uniting Nations, Russell Simmons, Mos Def, David Archuleta, Terrence Howard, Gabrielle Union, Vivica Fox, Elise Neal, and Shawn King - Visit Nation's Capitol to Promote Student Mentoring and Change for Child Welfare
Date:6/8/2009

tabenow, Congresswoman Laura Richardson and Congressman Dennis Cordoza.

In the year since the last conference, Children Uniting Nations has seen significant legislative achievements in support of mentoring for at-risk children. An amendment to provide loan forgiveness to community college students who mentor at-risk youth in their communities was passed by the House as part of the College Opportunity and Affordability Act in 2008, and an amendment to support the mentoring of children in foster care was passed unanimously in the Senate as part of the recent Serve America Act (2009). CUN looks forward to building upon these successes in the coming legislative session.

Children Uniting Nations Chairwoman Daphna Ziman remarked, "We are proud to have such amazing legislative support and incredible talent attending this years conference along with top university researchers and foundations assembled together in the effort of helping us raise awareness to the needs of our nations at risk youth and assist us in lending a voice to the voiceless children." Russell Simmons, Chairman and Co-Founder of the Hip-Hop Summit Action Network, emphasized, "Children Uniting Nations is one of the most effective organizations of our time and our partnership will help to raise public awareness about the key public policy issues that are focused on empowering children to have a better quality of life. The "Keeping the Promise to our Children" Conference in Washington on June 9, 2009 will enable more people to make a real difference on these important issues."
