On June 8th at 10am, 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 moving conversations and collective learning. We invite you to be a part of this powerful journey to explore what it will take to create together a more equitable and just future for children and families.

The two-part event will help us explore and better understand:
- 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 create a system that centers on families and relies on innovative solutions — transforming foster care into a system of last resort?
- How will we help heal families and communities harmed by racial and social inequity?
