46th National Child Welfare Law Conference

From Learning to Action: Shared Accountability for Disrupting Harm and Promoting Healing

Together we are Promoting Excellence, Building Community, Advancing Justice.

This year’s conference theme recognizes that all system actors have a shared responsibility to promote family integrity, center the voices and experiences of individuals with lived expertise, engage in authentic partnerships, and actively work towards equity and justice.

These continue to be trying times but know this — each and every one of you can make a meaningful impact. We thank our expert presenters for providing us the tools, strategies, and techniques we need to serve children, parents, families, and kin — and we thank all of you for your commitment to this work. You inspire and motivate us!

NACC has a new Refund Policy this year. Attendees must confirm they have reviewed prior to purchasing registration.

Once again, the top leaders in child welfare law came together — onsite and online!

This conference strengthened my ability to advocate for parents and children and opened my eyes to the need to address their trauma history, race, gender, and background in their advocacy.
