What's Next? Supporting Children, Youth, and Families in a Post-Abolition World
Thursday, April 13, 2023 | 9:30 AM EDT - 5:00 PM EDT
The symposium is about how we can transform our family regulation system. The system has been found to be racist, dysfunctional, and harmful to children and families, especially families of color, so much so that many people have called for its abolition. The symposium is intended to focus on solutions. We will begin with a panel with people with lived experience who are now working to improve the system and then will have three panels focused on how we can break down the current system and what various policies and initiatives might help to transform the system.
