TexProtects and the Blue Ribbon Task Force are co-hosting a debrief on the 87th Legislative Session, as well as a conversation about how we collectively move forward and prioritize children. We look forward to learning about your community’s specific strengths and challenges and co-design a plan to advance policies that support children before a crisis occurs. Topics include smart strategies to prevent child abuse and neglect; what can be done to address the state’s foster care capacity crisis; the continued roll-out of Community-Based Care; and how we can truly transform this system to serve children and families better.
Who is the Blue Ribbon Task Force and why we partnered with them: TexProtects is honored to partner with the Blue Ribbon Task Force. Led by Senator José Menéndez and chairs Peggy Eighmy, Judge John Specia, and Judge Peter Sakai, the Blue Ribbon Task Force is a leader in child abuse prevention efforts in Bexar County.
