This webinar is hosted by Florida Institute for Child Welfare

Broward County’s Child Welfare partners launched a Community Participatory Action Research (CPAR) project, funded by the Florida Institute for Child Welfare, to address racism and its resulting racial disparities in the system. Using equitable practices, the CPAR project connected child welfare professionals with the community members they serve along with researchers from the Children’s Services Council of Broward County. The CPAR project was transformative for the parents involved in the child welfare system, TIL youth, system professionals, and researchers. Their collaboration resulted in increased leadership and agency for the TIL youth and the parents who helped co-identify and co-create several systemic improvements for the child welfare system. Workshop participants will hear from the TIL youth, parents, and system professionals who worked together as co-researchers about their CPAR experience and how the process individually and collectively co-created equity. Workshop participants will have time to ask questions about how they might do this work in their communities. Join a panel discussion led by Drs. Sue Gallagher, Seanteé Campbell, and Carl Dasse from the Children’s Services Council of Broward County to discuss their experiences co-researching with a DCF administrator, and a parent and teen and what each of them learned.
