The Kempe Center is hosting this conference—A Call to Action to Change Child Welfare, from October 5-8, 2020. For 17 hours per day, with over 250+ sessions, speakers from 13+ countries, and diverse and engaging learning formats—multi-media, conversation circles, workshops, discussion groups, opening and closing sessions—we will maximize our international exchange and showcase new, radical, alternative, and transformational ideas. Experience presentations by, have conversations among, and make connections and learn with those with lived experience—parents, youth alumni and kinship care providers; child welfare practitioners, supervisors, administrators; legal, mental health, and medical professionals; community and neighborhood leaders; researchers; policymakers; advocates; and other thought leaders from around the world. Join 1500+ from around the world to re-envision child welfare. We will tackle issues of oppression, family leadership, child and youth participation, othering, racial equity, fairness, poverty, and injustice, all in the quest to develop solutions that will benefit children, families and communities. We will build an international community of practice, create connections and relationships, encourage curiosity and challenge traditional structures and ideas.
