Recent stories of the deaths of children in Illinois from abuse and neglect have shown the spotlight on the Department of Children and Family Services.  But these are a tiny glimpse into a labyrinthine system where there are often few good options. Join us for a discussion about what happens to our most vulnerable children and the people that are their safety nets as we look at adoption, reunification, foster care and the system designed to support them all.

Featuring: Tony Arnold, WBEZ’s Illinois politics reporter; Cece Lobin, Women’s Empowerment Director and local foster parent; Diane Redleaf, Executive Director of the Family Defense Center; and Anita Weinberg, director the ChildLaw Policy Institute at Loyola University Chicago; moderated by Susy Schultz, Executive Director of the Community Media Workshop at Columbia College Chicago.
