Equity & Access Workgroup: Addressing Inequity and Disparities within the Texas System

July 1, 2021 | 2:00pm


Please save the date to join us on July 1st for a discussion with Joyce James. For the past 24 years, Ms. James led the charge in Texas and across the Country to raise issues of institutional and structural racism in all helping systems. Her journey — from CPS caseworker to Assistant Commissioner of Texas CPS, to leader of the Center for Elimination of Disproportionality and Disparities (the Center) and the Texas State Office of Minority Health at the Texas Health and Human Services Commission (HHSC) — is a powerful one. Ms. James will share helpful information and offer recommendations on developing a collective call to action in response to inequity and disparities within the Texas child welfare system. Meeting information will be announced soon.
