Promoting Racial Justice in the Child Welfare System: A Virtual Congressional Briefing
Join us for the kick off of a virtual congressional briefing series on systemic racism and racial justice in the child welfare system organized by the Transition-Aged Youth Coalition. The series aims to provide Members of Congress and congressional staffers with the information necessary to understand the history and ongoing impact of systemic racism on children, youth, and families. The series will also highlight how current structures and policies affect families every day and the need for solutions, co-designed with those who have experienced and been impacted by the child welfare system. Part One of the series will explore the history of racism and inequity in the development of the child welfare system, the harm to youth and families, and principles for moving forward to address these inequities.
