January 29, 2021, 12:00 PM to 1:00 PM ET | A Conversation on the History of Racism in Child Welfare [a Facebook Live Event]
Join CSSP and First Focus for Children for a Facebook live conversation that will examine the history of racism within the child welfare system. This public discussion will offer individuals an opportunity to learn more about the early history of child welfare and examine the policies governing our modern child welfare system and help individuals to better understand how systemic racism impacts children, youth, and families who are already involved, or at risk of involvement with the child welfare system. This is the first in a series of public conversations on child welfare and race equity. There is no need to register; simply visit First Focus for Children’s Facebook page on Friday, January 29th, at or before 12:00 PM ET. For a reminder ahead of the event (and for future events), please RSVP here.
