IDENTIFYING KEY ISSUES
Our members work to identify key issues that affect both parents and children in the welfare system.
WORKING TOGETHER TO MAKE CHANGE
Together our members work collaboratively leading decision-making and action for all advocacy work they take on as a group surveillance and punishment.
PUTTING THE PIECES BACK TOGETHER
Our members are pushing to increase parent participation and voice in DCFS decision-making as well as collectively speaking with government officials, DCFS administration, and other stakeholders to create change in policies and practices so that eventually families can work on putting the pieces of their lives back together.
If you are a parent who has ever been subjected to a DCFS investigation and you are interested in adding your voice and expertise to this space as a P.O.W.R. member, please contact us to learn more.
