All The Children Are Well – A Restorative Dialogue with Community & Family Court

May 27 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm


All The Children Are Well A Restorative Dialogue with Community & Family Court

DMR is the Disproportionate Minority Group, a coalition of stakeholders from Erie County Family Court, CPS, DSS, and Foster Care and Adoption committed to ending racial disparities in child welfare through trauma informed care, restorative justice, inclusion, training, and restructuring flawed systems. VOICE Buffalo has worked with this coalition for the past two years and has used restorative practices to start the process of transforming current systems in collaboration with the community. To continue this work with fidelity in the midst of all the challenges surrounding us, we thought it best to initiate a restorative conversation with the Faith Community.

On Wednesday May, 27th @ 1:00 PM on Zoom (Meeting information is below) we will host a Community Based peace circle. “Nothing About Us Without Us Is For Us” it is important that we make sure that those who have been impacted are not just heard but empowered to be part of the solutions needed. We are asking you to share this information with folks in your congregations or communities that have been directly impacted by either family court, CPS, or the Foster Care and Adoption system. In order to respect the confidentiality of the space, we ask that no one attend the Circle who currently has an open CPS investigation or Family Court Case. We will share a flyer with some written information to help you spread the word for the Community based pace circle ahead of time.
