Who Should Attend: This conference is for child welfare workers, mental health professionals, school personnel, juvenile justice workers, policymakers and program administrators and organizational leaders from public and private agencies that work with at-risk children and families.
KEYNOTE PRESENTER – Andrea Elliott, Pulitzer Prize winning investigative journalist
Andrea Elliott is a Pulitzer-prize winning journalist who has documented the lives of poor Americans, Muslim immigrants and other people on the margins of power. She is an investigative reporter for The New York Times and the author of Invisible Child, published by Random House. Her reporting on Dasani Coates, a homeless child, prompted city officials to remove 400 children from substandard shelters. Her work has been awarded a Pulitzer Prize, a George Polk award, an Overseas Press Club prize, among other honors. She is the recipient of Columbia University’s Medal for Excellence and an honorary doctorate from Niagara University, which cited Elliott’s “courage, perseverance, and a commitment to fairness for those without a public voice rarely demonstrated among writers today.”
KEYNOTE PRESENTER – Michael D. Tubbs, former Mayor of Stockton, CA, Founder and Chair of Mayors
In 2016, he was elected Mayor of Stockton at 26-years-old. He was the city’s first African-American Mayor, and the youngest Mayor of any major city in American history. As Mayor, Tubbs was lauded for his leadership and innovation. He raised over $20 million dollars to create the Stockton Scholars, a universal scholarship and mentorship program for Stockton students. Additionally, he piloted the first mayor-led guaranteed income pilot in the country. Currently, he is the Special Advisor to California Governor Gavin Newsom for Economic Mobility and Opportunity; the Founder of Mayors for a Guaranteed Income (MGI); and the Founder of End Poverty in California (EPIC).
Under his leadership, Stockton was named an “All-America City” in 2017 and 2018 by the National Civic League. The city saw a 40% drop in homicides in 2018 and 2019, led the state of California in the decline of officer involved shootings in 2019, and was named the second most fiscally healthy city in California. Additionally, it was recognized as one of the most fiscally healthy cities in the nation and was featured in an HBO documentary film, “Stockton on My Mind.”
Tubbs has been named a fellow at the Harvard Institute of Politics and The MIT Media Lab, a member of Fortune’s Top 40 under 40, a Forbes 30 under 30 All Star Alumni, the “Most Valuable Mayor” by The Nation, the 2019 New Frontier Award Winner from the JFK Library, and the 2021 Civic Leadership Award winner from The King Center. Prior to his tenure as Mayor, Tubbs served as a Councilmember for the City of Stockton District 6, a high school educator, and a fellow for the Stanford Design School and the Emerson Collective.
On November 16, 2021, Tubbs released “The Deeper The Roots: A Memoir of Hope and Home” published by the Flatiron Books imprint, An Oprah Book. The book—which the LA Times describes as “intimate and insightful”—not only relates Tubbs’ story of growing up in poverty, but lays his vision for leadership and policy that is more empathetic and responsive to people who are struggling.
