Live interactive panel

This event highlights the imperative of centering anti-racist approaches in child welfare policy and practice. On March 3, 2022 from noon to 2:00 p.m., Dr. Kaela Byers and several of the community partners whose work is integral to the KU School of Social Welfare’s efforts with Kansas Strong for Children and Families and other child welfare scholarship, will discuss strategies to center the voices of youth and families in child welfare research and policy. To ensure that participants can engage in meaningful conversation about the urgency of a commitment to racial justice in child welfare, the panel will be followed by facilitated breakout sessions. Participants who attend this session will learn more about how disaggregated data and explicitly anti-racist inquiries can drive reforms to child welfare systems that meet this Grand Challenge.
