Over the last several months, Colorado Partnership for Thriving Families has hosted a series of conversations on Keeping Families Strong during COVID-19. Hundreds of family-strengthening professionals from across the state of Colorado have come together to share resources and innovations and work together to problem-solve the ongoing challenges of adapting their support of families to the ever-evolving context and needs that have arisen due to the COVID-19 crisis.
Thus far, the conversations have been broad, including discussion on families at all stages. For the upcoming conversation on June 23rd, the focus will shift to hone in on the Colorado Partnership for Thriving Families’ focus of families prenatal to one.
In alignment with this shift, the Partnership is excited to welcome Tara Stingley, Program Associate at Bright by Text, who will share information about the work they do to support families prenatal to one and how they have adapted this support amidst the COVID-19 pandemic. The Bright by Text program provides research-based information on child development – plus information about local events and resources – to Colorado parents and caregivers of children prenatal to age 8 in both English and Spanish.
Join the conversation to hear more from Tara about the service as well as how families can sign up for it!
Discuss your Ideas and Experiences Translating Anti-racism into Action.
Additionally, the Partnership knows that risk and protective factors for family well-being are not randomly distributed among families and communities. They are closely linked to the uneven distribution of wealth, opportunities and privileges that have been created and continue to be fostered by historical and systemic racism. Thus, it is imperative to continuously examine how implicit bias and explicit discrimination continue to shape the current systems and services and engage in continuous course-correction with an anti-racism and anti-discrimination focus. For the upcoming conversation on June 23rd, please be prepared to discuss your ideas and experiences with translating your commitment to anti-racism into action.
