Many counties and Prevention Planning Teams are engaged in conversations to uplift and improve equity, diversity, and inclusion. These topics are essential in addressing the disparity and disproportionality that exists within systems. Moreover, issues can be complex and tough to address within systems and communities. Below are some helpful resources from the Center for States that can support counties in their exploration and next steps. Please see the Center for States website for more resources and information: https://capacity.childwelfare.gov/states/.
Another resource to support your work is the California Training Institute (CalTRIN). CalTRIN is a newly funded partner of the OCAP and will provide a comprehensive, science-based professional education program to meet the needs of administrators, staff and stakeholders of Family Resource Centers (FRCs), Child Abuse Prevention Councils (CAPCs), and child welfare agencies in the state of California. You can find upcoming webinars on their website https://www.caltrin.org/about-us.
