At the Children’s Law Center, we embrace diverse identities and yet know that honoring equity and inclusivity requires an ongoing commitment to action. We will deepen our awareness, continue our learning, reflect on the impact of our policies and practices, and infuse these values in our organization’s framework.
At The Children’s Law Center, we believe:
Young people have so many needs across the spectrum of their childhoods, so we’ve designed diverse programs to meet those needs. We recognize that our advocacy has the potential to change the trajectory of their lives. Whether a child is struggling in the classroom or a youth is facing obstacles as they transition to adulthood, we are committed to advocating for and with them, case by case.
We are tackling complex social issues impacting families: poverty, systemic racism, homelessness, family violence, to name just a few. It will take all of us to bring the kind of change we want to see. When we come together to help young people reach their full potential, our communities will also be able to reach their full potential.
When it comes to young people, the status quo isn’t good enough. By working to change policies and improve practices, we ensure that our communities better support children, youth, and families to come.
Our staff is full of thoughtful, experienced, and committed individuals who show up every day to advocate for young people and their families, to challenge systems, and to strive to make our communities better. We are supported by a Board of Directors and an Associate Board who share our values and are passionate about our advocacy.
RMCLC has been a great partner in courtroom 170. They have made the process for the court as well as victims figuring out what is best for the children go smoothly. Victims’ tend to feel comfortable with the GALS. They also feel better with the help of RMCLC when temporary orders are placed and are agreed because they have a plan until a district court puts in orders.
