2023 Statewide Race Equity Convening
Hosted by the Travis County CWREC
Casey Family Programs
CASA of Travis County
Travis County Child Welfare Re-Imagined Pilot
August 3-4, 2023
Throughout the convening, we hope you will engage in simulation, team building, and improv. The purpose of this approach is to accelerate the meaning of “impact before outcome.” We want to discover, learn, play, and move in rhythm with one another so that we move into transformational co-design and community organizing (the NEW way).
Each of you play a role as interested parties. We gather to experience what is required for us to “nurture freedom dreams” of justice, liberation and belonging.

CWREC Data Analysis & Mapping Report
This report uses data obtained from the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services (DFPS) for Child Protective Services (CPS) involved families and children from 2018 to 2021 to demonstrate the urgent need for policymakers to collaborate and find better ways to support child and family well-being in Travis County. The data evaluation was conducted in partnership with cross-sector providers, community, parents/caregivers, and youth with lived experience. This approach successfully co-created space to humanize interested parties, understand and meet community needs, and harness our collective strengths for greater impact.
