Rise’s Peer & Community Care Model Webinar

Date and Time: Wednesday, May 26, 2021, 3:00 – 4:30 PM EDT

Register today for a webinar and panel discussion about strengthening support for families and communities!

In this webinar, Rise will present our vision for how a network of trained Peer and Community Supporters with lived experience can help to prevent involvement in the family regulation system (and other punitive systems), address barriers to resources and support identified by parents and contribute to safe, strong families and communities.

Peer support as a tool to strengthen safety, build connections and prevent system involvement is not a new idea — this work is already being done effectively in other spaces in New York City. In this webinar, we will hear from a panel of people experienced with building community and providing support through mutual aid networks, restorative justice approaches, credible messenger training, and harm reduction peer work.

We will also engage in discussion around what it will take to advocate for and build parent peer support networks throughout NYC and nationwide.
