In celebration of the 20th Anniversary of the Schubert Center for Child Studies at Case Western Reserve University, the Center is convening individuals committed to child well-being for an all-day forum, “Cleveland: A Community Committed to Our Children,” on April 27, 2018.
Researchers, practitioners, advocates, activists, parents, young people and others in the greater Cleveland community are invited to be a part of this day of exploration, collaboration and action. If you are interested in presenting, please submit your proposal using the link below by June 15, 2017.
The Schubert Center for Child Studies at Case Western Reserve University is committed to the well-being of all children and young people, and to promoting an equitable environment in which all children can thrive regardless of their country of origin, race, gender, or religion.
Far too often in human history the world has stood by as one group or another was singled out and deprived of their rights, dignity, well-being, and even survival. This has never been a proud moment for humanity. We deplore all policies and actions that threaten the well-being of children and young people, their families and communities and promote injustice and discrimination.
We stand firmly with immigrant and refugee children and their families and communities.
The Schubert Center supports advancing positive interactions between youth and police and promotes developmentally informed policies and practices. This guide was created to help the Cleveland community – and specifically young people – better understand the consent decree involving the CLE police. The Citizen’s Guide can be downloaded here.
