MFG has been emotionally impacted as we prioritize authentic relationships, trust, and a commitment to learning. This impact has strengthened our unwavering obligation to activate, organize and build accountable relationships with families, communities and partners who desire an antiracist child welfare system. We have grown as a collective and in our understanding of how anti-Blackness is deeply entrenched in our policies, data, and workforce practices. We value the reality that advancing racial justice cannot be done without the voices, leadership, and expertise of individuals most harmed by racist outcomes. MFG is in a unique position to support your efforts and will invest critical thinking, antiracist analysis and examination to ensure that we are strategizing with history so that families and communities have a say in designing a racially just future.
