Child Welfare Should be Replaced Completely, Not Fixed
David Kelly was a recent podcast guest on the EPPiC Broadcast: Empowering Parents and Protecting Children by the Parental Rights Foundation. David is our Director of the Family Integrity & Justice Works (FIJW) team here at Public Knowledge®. During this riveting conversation, he explains that the child welfare system is not something that needs adjusting here and there but replaced entirely.
“In order to animate justice, to make justice real in the lives of the families and children that come into contact with child welfare, we have to replace the negative experience, the negative approaches…we have to replace all of that with love, kindness, healing, and proactive support.”David Kelly, Director of the Family Integrity & Justice Works (FIJW) at Public Knowledge®
As the newest team at Public Knowledge ®, this is just the beginning for everyone at FIJW to make an impact on the Child Welfare system.
“Not only are we designing an alternative, but we also have to be serious about going after the conditions across these systems. We have this deep and wide pool of expert colleagues that can lend their wisdom to our efforts.”David Kelly, Director of the Family Integrity & Justice Works (FIJW) at Public Knowledge®
