Cassandra Welchlin: Security and Childcare for Women and Children

The MS Women’s Economic Security Initiative is rooted at the cross-section between gender and race.

The MS Low Income Child Care Initiative's (MLICCI) deep relationships with low-income single mothers struggling in an inequitable workforce and child care providers struggling to finance services with inadequate revenue connect our work to the lives of women across the state, and root our work at the intersection of sexism, racism, and classism. 

Racism and sexism in MS and the US have long converged to shape public policies in ways that thwart assistance to poor, single women of color and their young children. 

MLICCI’s women’s economic security campaign "Making MS Women Secure" aims to reverse these impacts and improve women’s economic security by engaging those women most impacted  and create a policy agenda. 

Time: 11:45 AM to 1 PM
Date: Wednesday, April 13, 2016
Location: Mississippi Arts Center; 201 E. Pascagoula St., Jackson, MS


Members and non-members are encouraged to attend and bring guests. The cost is $12 per person ($10 for current members), payable on site by cash, credit card or check the day of the program, and includes lunch catered by Broad Street Bakery.
