THE STATE OF THE CHILDREN
What if instead of a State of the Union to talk about the health of the economy, our nation gave a State Of The Children, a moment where we reflected on humanity’s greatest resource and embodied future?
Father + futurist Mark Gonzales and I will engage in a bold & vulnerable conversation on what it means to be a parent in this era, who defines childhood and who gets to stay young, as well as innovative ways different nations are advancing the wellbeing of the littlest humans.
