The Power of Parent Advocacy
In this issue, we celebrate the hard work, perseverance and success of the parent advocacy movement and of parents across the country working to end the negative perception and treatment of families affected by the child welfare system.
Parent advocates are working in many different ways to support parents, end unnecessary family separation, challenge system leaders and policymakers to implement reforms that strengthen families and communities, and uplift the voices of everyone affected by the system.
Beyond the magazine, Rise builds parent leadership to drive solutions that parents believe will help their families thrive. We take inspiration and new ideas from parent advocates leading change across the country. We hope this issue will help parents get involved, help advocates learn from one another, and encourage investment in parent leadership.
