The Stoneleigh Foundation is pleased to invite you to our fall virtual convening series, Reimagining Public Systems: Centering Racial Equity to Serve Youth, Families, and Communities.
Our two panels will examine the ways in which the last year’s resounding call for racial equity has led to innovative thinking about how public systems are serving youth, families, and communities—and why we must do better.
Virtual Convening 1
Reimagining the Justice, Child Welfare, and Immigration Systems
Thursday, November 18 | 10:00 - 11:30 am
Virtual Convening 2
Reimagining the Housing, Education, and Behavioral Health Systems
Tuesday, December 7 | 10:00 - 11:30 am
The Stoneleigh Foundation is also pleased to announce a Request for Letters for Reimagining Public Systems: Centering Racial Equity to Serve Youth, Families, and Communities. We invite individuals to submit new ideas to improve or redefine the policies, practices, norms, and systems that will impact youth, families, and communities for decades to come.
Letters of Inquiry are due by December 15, 2021.
Spurred by activists’ call to defund the police, only in the past few years have policymakers and the public begun an earnest debate about a broad reimagining of public safety and a reinvestment in prevention and community supports. At the same time, other public systems—including child welfare, youth justice, housing, education, health, and immigration—have begun to examine whether, despite their charge to care for youth, families, and communities, they may be doing more harm than good.
At this pivotal moment, The Stoneleigh Foundation is soliciting Letters of Inquiry for Fellowship projects 1-3 years in duration that offer a broad reimagining of how public systems might better serve youth, families, and communities.
