COUNCIL ON CONTEMPORARY FAMILIES ANNUAL CONFERENCE
co-sponsored by the University-Based Child and Family Policy Consortium
The Council on Contemporary Families is a non-profit, non-partisan organization dedicated to providing the press and public with the latest research and best-practice findings about American families. Our members include demographers, economists, family therapists, historians, political scientists, psychologists, social workers, sociologists, as well as other family social scientists and practitioners.
Founded in 1996 and based at the University of Miami, the Council's mission is to enhance the national understanding of how and why contemporary families are changing, what needs and challenges they face, and how these needs can best be met. To fulfill that mission, the Council holds annual conferences, open to the public, and issues periodic briefing papers and fact sheets, which journalists can sign up to receive by writing to Stephanie Coontz, Director of Research and Public Education, at email@example.com.
The University-Based Child and Family Policy Consortium is comprised of twenty of the leading child and family policy centers and programs across the country. The Consortium fosters both research and engagement by sharing strategies for conducting policy-relevant research, facilitating scientific collaboration around child and family policy, and fostering effective translation between research, practice, and policy.
