Forum on ACS & Family Court Part-1
excerpts from a forum on ACS and the NY Family Courts
held at the Nation Action Network's House of Justice.
This week's speakers will include, Chairman of NY State
Children & Families, Assemblyman Roger Green, NY City
Councilwoman Ronnie Eldridge, former family court judge
the Honorable Karen Burstein, and Rev. Al Sharpton. There
will also be testimony from several parents, a former
foster child and a grandmother who is searching for her
grandchild who was put up for adoption against her wishes
by ACS. This is the first in a series to air excerpts
of testimonies by parents, legislators, advocates and
others in search of more sensitive and effective ways
of dealing with foster care's negative impact on children
& families of color in NYC.
