Transforming Systems., a virtual event filled with moving conversations and collective learning.

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?
