Members of our Family Integrity & Justice Works team shared their expertise on how to protect the rights of children, youth, and families.
Leaders in child welfare law across the country convened at The National Association of Counsel for Children’s (NACC) National Child Welfare Law Conference, including Public Knowledge®. As a firm prioritizing knowledge sharing, this was a valuable opportunity to discuss and share with others as our country is recovering from the public health crisis and as we redefine advocacy in the movement of ending racism and bias in the child welfare system.
David Kelly and Jey Rajaraman Delivered the Closing Plenary
David, Co-Director of Family Integrity and Justice Works (FIJW) and a former leadership member of the U.S. Children’s Bureau, along with Jey, FIJW management consultant and former chief counsel and supervising attorney of Legal Services of New Jersey’s Family Representation Project, spoke at the NACC Child Welfare Law Conference.
Collaborative Advocacy in Child Welfare Litigation: Working Together to Improve
