July 2020 PLC – Using Stories to Create Change: Our Tomorrows and the Community Sensemaking Approach

Child abuse is preventable. Why, then, do we struggle to move the needle? Our Tomorrows sought to better understand the Kansas early childhood system and the compounding issues affecting families in their own words. As a result, the state is becoming more responsive to real family experiences from the community to the state level.  This webinar highlights Our Tomorrows story collection, key findings and how programs can create meaningful, positive change for families by incorporating community participation at every stage.
