About Family Impact Seminars

Since 1992 the Georgetown Public Policy Institute has sponsored a series of community seminars, known as the D.C. Family Impact Seminars. This series is affiliated with the national Family Impact Seminar program, with headquarters in Madison, Wisconsin. In the fall of 2002 CROCUS assumed responsibility for the D.C. Family Impact Seminars. The purpose of these seminars is to highlight public policy controversies involving children, especially children at risk, with attention to national, state, and local policy choices and their implications for children and families in the District of Columbia and elsewhere.

For a list of past CROCUS Family Impact Seminars please see the Policy Institute for Family Impact Seminars website under District of Columbia.
