Building Parent Leadership and Power to Support Faster, Lasting Reunification and Prevent System Involvement
This webinar is hosted by American Bar Association
Rise is an NYC-based advocacy organization led by parents impacted by the family policing system. We envision communities that are free from injustice, family policing and separation. We imagine a society that cultivates new ways of preventing and addressing harm and ensures that all families have what they need to thrive. Rise presenters will provide an overview of recent updates to our leadership, mission and programs—including our approaches to building parent leadership and shifting power to impacted parents and communities. Our strategies involve advocating for investment in families and communities and building peer support networks.
