Let’s Be Real: The Urgent Need for Change in Child Welfare, Courts, and DV Programs

 

Let’s Be Real was the public plenary of “All of Us, Every Family,” the QIC-DVCW conference that took place in March 2021. There, the QIC-DVCW convened a group of thought leaders from child welfare, dependency courts and domestic violence services for a real conversation about the roles of each system in perpetuating structural racism, and the need for accountability and action. This conversation is available for viewing here.
