Keynote Speaker: Madeleine Albright

We're excited to announce the conference's Keynote Address from Former U.S. Secretary of State Madeleine Albright.

Thank You, CARE Advocates!

Thank you for all that you did to make our 14th CARE National Conference such a success. The passion with which you voiced your commitment to food security, maternal and child health and emergency response delivered a clear message to our elected officials and millions of others through the media coverage we received. We hope you left Washington feeling even more informed, more empowered to speak up for the millions of people, particularly women, who stand to benefit from legislation CARE supports. They are the farmers for whom greater access to resources means greater capacity to feed their families and communities, the mothers and children for whom good health brings greater opportunity to fulfill their life potential, the families in crisis for whom increased funding will help pave a path beyond the chaos and uncertainty.
