On September 22, we collaborated with Children at Risk to present The State of Latinx Children in the United States to bring awareness on issues and opportunities impacting the over 18 million Latinx children living in our country. TCP’s Managing Director of Policy, Gabriella Barbosa, moderated the event which included panels on education, health and economic justice with policy and practice experts from organizations in California, Texas and Utah.
