2018 National Anti-Hunger Policy Conference

On February 25-27, four CLASP staff will be speaking at the 2018 National Anti-Hunger Policy Conference in Washington, DC. Nune Phillips will co-lead a roundtable on administrative advocacy, drawing on lessons from Advancing Strategies to Align Programs to highlight how state advocates can effectively engage administrators to improve benefit delivery systems with a goal of expanding access and increasing enrollment in SNAP and other core basic needs programs. Elizabeth Lower-Basch and Madison Hardee will be leading two roundtable discussions as part of a session for front line providers entitled “Concrete Strategies to Help Immigrant Communities Access Nutrition Programs and Resources.” Wendy Cervantes will be moderating a cross-cutting session entitled “A Broader Lens: How Policies—Both Real and Perceived—Toward Immigrants are Harming the Food Security of their Families.”
