Join Voices for Children for an online Real Word Reunion Speakers Panel featuring two individuals who spent time in local foster care and their Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) volunteers. The Real Word is a panel comprised of individuals who have spent time in foster care after experiencing abuse, neglect, or abandonment by their caregivers. The “Reunion” panel will feature two Real Word alumni along with their CASA volunteers, who together will reflect on foster care, pivotal moments in their lives, and the role of CASAs. Even more special, attendees will be able to see the special bond between the panelists and their CASAs, which has remained strong through transitions into adulthood, careers, and family life. Award-winning journalist and co-host of KPBS Midday Edition Maureen Cavanaugh will guide the discussion with panelists Josh and Candace and their CASAs, Tim and Genevieve.
