The Addressing Racism and White Supremacy in Child Welfare in BC is a webinar series coordinated by West Coast LEAF in partnership with the Courthouse Libraries of BC. The purpose of this series is to develop knowledge and skills for legal actors to take up anti-racist practice and challenge white supremacy in the child protection system, also known as the family policing system.
This series is part of our child welfare advocacy Communities of Practice project, which seeks to create spaces to come together and learn from one another about family policing advocacy and ways to challenge that system.
