Over the course of four weeks, Texas CASA had the amazing opportunity to host conversations with trailblazers in equity and child welfare: Dr. Jessica Pryce, Riki Wilchins, Kevin Campbell and Professor Ibram X. Kendi.
Each of these speakers offered eye-opening and candid insight into our child welfare system and how all of us can help create positive change. They grounded their insights in data and research, and contextualized them in history, ensuring anyone and everyone watching could leave with a better understanding of how they could meaningfully contribute to a more just and equitable society. Topics discussed include systemic racism and anti-racism, implicit bias, class, gender norms, LGBTQ+ issues and more.
Important note: Professor Kendi’s recording expired Dec. 3. Purchase Professor Kendi’s book or learn more about his work.
Thank you to everyone who tuned in live, shared the series with others and helped us make it a success. We are excited to announce that we will be hosting a Distinguished Speaker Series again, with new speakers, in 2021!
