With snow heading toward our offices in Aspen and DC, it's proving true that March comes in like a lion, as the saying goes. Our events this month will keep you engaged and inspired no matter the weather.
With the cherry blossoms ringing the tidal basin and the White House as our backdrop, Ascend, the Family Economic Security Program, held its launch celebration March 28 on the rooftop of the Hay-Adams Hotel. It was fantastic to see so many of our friends and partners, past and present, gathered under one roof: field innovators from California to Oklahoma to Tennessee; philanthropists and representatives of major foundations from across the country; college presidents; Administration officials; researchers and policy experts; and journalists from National Journal to Slate.
