Register below to participate. The event will review the findings in the “Shattered Families” report and present the key policy and practice recommendations.
Applied Research Center has just released "Shattered Families," a groundbreaking report offering the first national data available on the perilous intersection of immigration enforcement and the child welfare system.
More than 5,000 children whose parents have been either detained or deported are languishing in foster care right now - facing threat of permanent separation from their families - and ARC projects another 15,000 children in the next five years if immigration enforcement continues at this rate.
In this webinar, ARC will review the findings in “Shattered Families” and present policy and practice recommendations for Department of Homeland Security, various levels of legislature, state child welfare departments, immigration and juvenile dependency attorneys and courts on how we can better protect families from separation and reunify families in a timely way.
