Los Angeles Child Protection Checkup #3

The Blue Ribbon Commission on Child Protection issued its final report in April 2014, which included 42 specific child welfare reforms for Los Angeles County.

Understanding the news media’s unique power to impel action, Fostering Media Connections is offering these quarterly “Child Protection Checkups” in the hopes that they will spur continued attention and nourish the reform effort.

Through original reporting, we aim to make this admittedly bureaucratic document come to life, and show where the reform effort is moving forward and where it has stalled.

Our hope is that county leadership, the child protection and child welfare communities, and our colleagues in the news media will use our third “Child Protection Checkup” to better understand and accelerate the pace of change to improve the lives of vulnerable children.
