"Raising UP The Voices" with Cathleen Crain, Niel Tashima and Reiko Ishihara-Brito of LTG Associates
We will have a discussion of advocacy videos on raising children in poverty. LTG Associates recently completed the development of two video ethnographies for The California Department of Health Care Services (DHCS). The two video ethnographies and a library of video clips are being used by DHCS for education and advocacy focused on law makers, policy makers, service developers and implementers, and students of social services and sciences. "Raising UP The Children" brings the voices and stories of low-income parents working to raise fully healthy children. The video will be shown and there will be an opportunity for discussion with the presenters, Cathleen Crain, Niel Tashima and Reiko Ishihara-Brito from LTG Associates.
