Racial Justice
Promoting Racial Justice through Policy and Practice
An FFTA Webinar Series

As our society struggles to address the racial inequities that have been brought so starkly into the public consciousness, we in child welfare have a unique responsibility to address the issues that disadvantage the children we serve. This FFTA member webinar series will share the remarkable work that organizations are doing to make significant changes in policies and practices that will bring greater equity and racial justice for children and families of color. Our webinars will provide a forum for discussion and inspiration as we fulfill a commitment to address racism and disproportionality, and drive change in policy and practice.
