"It Takes a Village ... A Conversation on Child Protection Systems" to take place on Friday, April 30

A dialogue between those who help set policy for the child protective system and those who implement that policy will be the substance of a panel discussion on Friday, April 30, at the New Haven Free Public Library.

Co-sponsored by Yale Law School’s Jerome N. Frank Legal Services Organization and Mothers for Justice, the public workshop is the first of a four-part series dealing with issues of child welfare. Topics to be taken up in future discussions of this series will be domestic violence, child support and economic security. The panelists who will speak at the session this Friday include Superior Court Judge Jon Alexander; James Carr of the Department of Children and Families; and Kathleen Sullivan of the Jerome N. Frank Legal Services Organization. Parents and foster parents from the community will also participate in the discussion.

The event, which is free and open to the public, will take place 10P11:30 a.m. at the New Haven Free Public Library, 133 Elm St.
