On Friday, April 19, 2019 nearly 350 educators, community members, business leaders, policy makers and thought leaders gathered at William W. Philip Hall at UW Tacoma to think aspirationally about our community and the day's theme "Children at the Center". Hosted by David Zeeck, attendees were challenged to think outside of the norm, heard stories of successful changes, heard directly from children about how to support them, and committed a forward momentum for our community.
