Real Word "Reunion" Speakers Panel
Online Zoom presentation
Tuesday, April 27 from 5:30-6:45 PM
Event is free and open to the public but not appropriate for children.
Join Voices for Children on Tuesday, April 27, for a special online Real Word Reunion Speakers Panel featuring two individuals who spent time in local foster care and their Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) volunteers.
The Real Word is a panel comprised of individuals who have spent time in foster care after experiencing abuse, neglect, or abandonment by their caregivers. The “Reunion” panel will feature two Real Word alumni along with their CASA volunteers, who together will reflect on foster care, pivotal moments in their lives, and the role of CASAs. Even more special, attendees will be able to see the special bond between the panelists and their CASAs, which has remained strong through transitions into adulthood, careers, and family life.
