Measuring Family Separation, and Biden-Harris Child Welfare Policy

By The Imprint

On this week’s podcast we provide an overview of the Who Cares project, The Imprint’s annual data collection on foster youth and foster homes in America. We also discuss some local and state election results, and what’s going on with the Biden transition team. We’re joined by Melissa Carter, executive director of the Barton Child Law and Policy Center at Emory University, and Andy Barclay, statistician for the group Fostering Court Improvement, to discuss a new metric to track family separation in America. Imprint columnist Vivek Sankaran joins to discuss what he hopes a Biden-Harris child welfare policy will look like. Reading RoomWho Cares: A National Count of Foster Homes and Familieswww.FosterCareCapacity.orgWho Cares 2020 Executive Summarybit.ly/36IOW2AWe Want Kids to Grow Up in Safe Families.
