About Our Virtual Event
For 138 years, Children’s Home & Aid has worked to do whatever it takes to help thousands of children and families thrive. While we have shaped the lives of countless children for the better, we understand we must urgently transform our practices and focus on creating equity across communities. Now, more than ever, it is essential that we ask ourselves the hard questions to confront––and then transform––systems that, for centuries, have created unjust racial and social barriers that limit the ability for families and communities to truly thrive.
How will we ensure one’s ability to thrive is not predicated on their race, cultural background, economic status, or zip code? What will it take to transform the current child welfare system into a system that centers on families, and relies on innovative solutions addressing the root cause of the negative conditions families experience? How will we help heal families and communities harmed by racial and social inequity?
On June 8th, Children’s Home & Aid and our Ahlquist Center for Policy, Practice & Innovation will be hosting Breaking Barriers. Centering Families. Transforming Systems., a virtual event filled with inspiring conversations and collective learning. We invite you to be a part of this powerful journey to explore what it will take to create together – in partnership with children, families and their communities – a more equitable and just future for all.
