policy, Caregivers, Kin Caregivers

The Alliance for Children’s Rights, joined by the Children's Law Center of California, Los Angeles Dependency Lawyers, and UCLA Pritzker Center for Strengthening Children and Families, hosted a virtual policy summit bringing together a diverse group of practitioners, advocates, and people with lived experience to consider racial inequities in the child welfare system.

The policy summit focused on a draft report including a set of policy recommendations to support and empower the children, families, and communities served by the system. Summit attendees participated in facilitated breakout sessions to provide feedback on the draft policy recommendations.
