Reimagining Black Family & Child Well-Being

Wednesday, June 15

2:00-3:30 p.m. ET

Join Child Trends for Reimagining Black Family and Child Well-Being in Research, Programming, and Public Policy, a webinar on re-conceptualizing well-being for Black children and their families. Initiatives to support Black children and families too often focus on what's wrong. Child Trends wants to shift the national conversation toward a more holistic understanding of Black families and communities that acknowledges their cultural assets. Panelists include research, policy, direct service, and advocate voices who will discuss how common perceptions of Black child and family well-being have influenced policies and programs to date and what an asset-based approach to research, policy, service, and advocacy could look like. This webinar is part of a new Child Trends initiative to build a multi-year applied research agenda on Black children and families. Part of this initiative includes a recent brief that outlines how Black families' cultural assets can inform policy and practice, along with an upcoming summary of research priorities proposed by community organizations serving Black children and families.
