How do we create equitable outcomes for children and families of color within the child welfare system? Join Lutheran Child and Family Services of Illinois for a virtual community meeting as we explore ways to achieve racial equity in the child welfare system and create equitable outcomes for children and families of color. Hear how LCFS is moving the needle within their foster care program by increasing permanency for youth or color and decreasing days in care. Attendees will also hear from our panel of child welfare leaders on how their organizations are working toward dismantling institutional racism and achieving racial equity. This is a FREE virtual event. Eligible attendees can be awarded 2.0 continuing education credits.
