Survival and Resilience in the Child Welfare, Juvenile and Criminal Justice Systems

State interference disproportionately affects the integrity of families in the most vulnerable circumstances, including those facing deep poverty, disability, mental health issues, drug addiction, and incarceration. Advocates from Community Legal Services in Philadelphia, the Incarcerated Parents Project, and Justice Now will discuss how these laws and policies, combined with the lack of concrete, systemic supports, destabilize low income families and communities, and their work to share information, resources and strategies to create wellness and build community power.
