Presented by Greg Borom
Join Greg Borom, Director of Advocacy at Children First/ Communities In Schools as he highlights the poverty and education gaps in our community that hinder the success of our children and our future. This presentation and discussion is aimed at inspiring community action to build opportunity for all our children. When our leaders create policies that are good for children, it leads to better health, education, and safety for our whole community.
With a goal to alleviate the root causes of child poverty, CF/CIS works to unite and educate our community, connect individuals and groups to collaborate and advocate for investment in effective programs that meet children’s basic needs and place them on a path to success.
Greg Borom coordinates public policy advocacy in partnership with volunteers, staff, and partner organizations. He has 25 years of experience in nonprofits, faith-based organizations, community organizing, and policy advocacy. Greg believes that nonprofits bring an important voice to policy decisions when they take time to build advocacy capacity based on their values. Besides being passionate about expanding opportunities for children’s health, education, and well-being through public policy, Greg also searches for inspiration in music, nature, and friendships.
Informal discussion and refreshments will follow the presentation. All are welcome.
