There are many opportunities to contribute to this effort. Leaders of color who speak out in support of these efforts are making powerful statements to children and families in the child welfare system and to their communities. Partnerships with the Alabama-Coushatta, Ysleta del Sur Pubelo, and Kickapoo Traditional Tribe of Texas are ongoing. Building awareness and responsiveness in communities across Texas is an important aspect of finding solutions to disproportionality.
