Children Uniting Nations, its supporters and several policy makers united at our 5th annual national forum in Washington, DC on July 21, 2010 to discuss issues that impact America’s at-risk and foster care youth. The National Conference is renowned for bringing top researchers, international experts, non-profit leaders, legislators and policy makers together to discuss the most urgent needs of our youth.
