2021 Illinois CASA Virtual State Conference - Closing the Gap: Equity in Advocacy
Our vision is an Illinois in which all children thrive in a safe, permanent, and loving home, and we can accomplish this together. The virtual conference is designed for new and experienced CASA Volunteers, Program Staff, and Child Welfare Professionals. Closing the Gap: Equity in Advocacy provides unique learning sessions and networking opportunities. Recent events have caused us to reflect, dialogue and identify more proactive ways to address racism, injustices, diversity, equity, engagement, and inclusion. Join us as we begin to address Equity in Advocacy for children who have experienced abuse and neglect in Illinois.
Join us Thursday, March 4, 2021 1pm - 4 pm for an interactive "Staff Development Day" (including Executive Directors, Program Staff and State and Local Board Members). The Administrative Office of Illinois Courts, Children's Research Triangle and LaDonna Wattley will present important dialogue for the day. Your ticket also includes the "2021 Illinois CASA Virtual State Conference," Friday, March 5, 2021 8:15 am - 2:30 pm.
