Judges are key players in the lives of families engaged in the child welfare system. 
Join us August 7-9, 2019 for a Special Summit for
Judges at the Alia Innovation Hub!

Judges wield incredible power and therefore also hold a tremendous opportunity to be a power for good in the lives of families. Judges can even bring healing and joy to the darkest moments in a family’s life. At the Judges Summit, participants will learn judicial practices that build a trauma-responsive approach for everyone in the courtroom.
