Irv Katz Named as Interim
We are pleased to announce that the National Assembly’s former chief executive, President Emeritus Irv Katz, has agreed to serve as Interim President and CEO beginning on December 1. As the National Assembly moves forward in our 93rd year, we continue to play an important role in bringing together the organizations that are committed to a fair and just society for everyone and to advance our shared goals. There has rarely been a time in our history when the work of National Assembly members has been more acutely needed by those who find themselves on the hard side of the American dream. There is much good work ahead – and we remain firmly focused. Thank you for your continued support. Read more about this change in leadership >>
New Reframing Human Services Tools
We are proud to announce that the new reframing tools are available online!
Collaborating with our members, partners and funders, the Assembly’s National Reframing Initiative seeks to build public understanding of human services to encourage more vibrant civic participation and deepen support for effective programs. As part of this multi-year initiative, generously funded by the Kresge Foundation and Annie E. Casey Foundation, the Assembly engaged the FrameWorks Institute to develop an evidence-based strategy for reframing the work of the sector. We now have a robust set of tools available to equip our members and partners to integrate this new narrative into their advocacy, communications, and resource development strategies.

We are pleased to release our policy report, Breaking the Cycle of Poverty in Young Families: Two-Generation Policy Recommendations, thanks to generous support from the Annie E. Casey Foundation and ASCEND at the Aspen Institute. Read the report >>
