Progress Report on Los Angeles Child Protection

Wednesday, August 6, 2014

In an effort to keep reforms moving forward in Los Angeles County, Fostering Media Connections has released a 23-page "Los Angeles Child Protection Checkup" that outlines reform activities since the Los Angeles Blue Ribbon Commission on Child Protection released its final recommendations to the Board of Supervisors on April 18. 

Their hope is that county leadership, the child protection and child welfare communities, and colleagues in the news media will use this document to better understand and accelerate the pace of change to improve the lives of vulnerable children. 

Feedback is welcome on this first quarterly report, and a second report will be drafted in October - please consider sharing your knowledge about the latest developments in the county. 

Here's an analysis from Daniel Heimpel, founder of Fostering Media Connections:
