Open Forum Discussion Advocating Children's Rights

with State Representatives Frank Liberati, Cara Clemente, Darrin Camilleri, Jewell Jones, Abdullah Hammond, Alex Garza, Tyrone Carter & Laurie Pohutsky

The opioid crisis and mental health issues have brought many children into relatives care. These open forum discussions give caregivers the opportunities to talk with other in situations similar to their own and the chance to discuss any challenges they may be facing today.

Bring your questions and concerns about the following or any others you are experiencing:

  • Children's rights
    • De facto custodian law
    • Establishing time frame for parents before "Termination of Parental Rights"
  • Support for children in relative care
    • Mental health services/trauma support
    • Childcare and extra curricular activities


Hosted at University of Michigan (Dearborn Campus)
