[February 2022] Policy Agenda Focus Group: Child & Family Well-Being

Policy Agenda Focus Group: Child & Family Well-Being
Webinar
Feb. 22 from 2-3 p.m. ET


During this focus group, we will explore child and family well-being through the lens of the child welfare, behavioral health, and justice systems and discuss the policy issues that are important to our network in this space. In addition, this focus group will address how we can create conditions to incentivize providing prevention and supports to families and the policy interventions needed to build on the momentum of the Family First Prevention Services Act.

About the 2022-2024 Policy Agenda Setting Process and Focus Groups
Social Current is currently leading a highly inclusive and collaborative process to engage its network in developing its federal policy agenda for 2022-2024. The agenda-setting process will determine the federal policies and issues of focus for our network’s collective policy and advocacy work. Our coordinated and connected efforts will provide the Social Current network with the support and influence needed to engage their boards, staff, and communities in achieving federal policy change.

This series of focus groups, held in February and March, will capture critical feedback from the Social Current network on policy issue areas. All Social Current network organizations, including those that have purchased engagement packages or are pursuing or have achieved COA Accreditation, are strongly encouraged to participate relevant focus groups. We welcome the input of leaders at all levels.
