Up2Us continues to be dedicated to educating our Nation’s leaders on the importance of sports-based youth development. Last week in Washington DC, Up2Us members came together for the first federal forum on why sports are important to child development. During the week, attendees were able to reach out to a number of groups in order to share our message:
- White House
- U.S. Senate
- U.S. House of Representatives
- Corporation for National and Community Service
- Department of Education
- Department of Health and Human Services
- Department of Interior
- Department of Justice
- President’s Council on Fitness, Sports and Nutrition
- Let’s Move!
Thank you Up2Us for putting together this forum. While Urban Initiatives was unable to attend the event we are grateful that our voice was heard through you and the incredible sports-based youth development organizations that were present.
