Preventive Legal Advocacy & Pre-Petition Representation: Where We Are, Where We Are Headed, and What We Are Learning
Preventive legal advocacy and pre-petition programs are the result of strategically targeted efforts to support families through upstream civil legal services that address social determinants of health and safely reduce instances of unnecessary child welfare system involvement. Building on the work of the National Preventive Legal Advocacy Partnership, child welfare experts and representatives from existing and emerging preventive legal advocacy programs across the country have been coming together monthly to explore issues related to the successful implementation of upstream civil legal advocacy. This session will provide a brief synopsis of the preventative legal advocacy cohort’s work and serve as an opportunity for participants to consider where the movement is headed and the important lessons we’re learning along the way.
