NICWA invites you to attend the National Indian Child Welfare Association’s (NICWA) listening session on redesigning child welfare systems on March 23 from 11:00 am to 12:00 pm Pacific time. This listening session is intended for Northwest tribes. 

NICWA has been engaged in child welfare system redesign and reform work for some time and more recently been a part of discussions at the national level with other child advocacy organizations on the future of the child welfare system in the United States. Over the last few years we have come to better understand systemic racism and inequities in different systems and now advocates and policymakers are asking serious questions about fundamental changes that need to occur in child welfare systems. With support from Annie E Casey Foundation, NICWA will be hosting a series of regional and national listening sessions with tribal nations and urban Indian communities to better understand the experience and perspectives of Native people with regard to child welfare systems. Our goal is to provide participants with information on the current national discussions regarding child welfare redesign, opportunities to share your perspectives, identify the best ways to engage, and identify some initial ideas on where change is needed most. If you have any questions regarding how you can attend or the content, please email Betty Bryant at betty@nicwa.org. We hope to see you at the listening session! 

Best Regards,

David Simmons
