National Reunification Day 2015

National Reunification Day, held on June 6, 2015, celebrated the reunification of families impacted by child welfare intervention, and encouraged parents and advocates to turn their stories into solutions. Family Defense Center parent advocate Suzanne Sellers and Legal Assistance Foundation board member Kevin Brown led a discussion about how they have used their own personal stories to advocate for systemic change and help others. Then, participants practiced telling their stories to each other, and parents who were personally affected by child welfare intervention were recognized.
