Wednesday forum provides insight on recession’s impact on children

Daily News staff report

The Colorado Children’s Campaign comes to Frisco Sept. 7 to discuss how they use advocacy to “move the needle” for the benefit of children statewide.

Attendees will have the opportunity to ask questions and speak with Colorado Representative Millie Hamner.
