Invitation to Share Your Expertise - Counsel for Kids
Children in court need lawyers of their own. We're working to make sure they have them. From babies to young adults, youth in court should be seen, heard, and represented.

14 states do not guarantee a right to counsel to youth experiencing the child welfare system. The Counsel for Kids campaign works to change state law so that people receive high-quality legal advice and representation as they navigate the child welfare system.

Often, policymakers and journalists want to hear from people the system affects directly. However, Counsel for Kids and the National Association of Counsel for Children recognize that this could involve sharing deeply personal information, and that sharing a personal story can be difficult and/or traumatic.

If you have lived experience in the child welfare system, we invite you to contribute to our efforts through your expertise. This could mean sharing your personal story if you would like to, or it could mean not sharing your personal story but sharing your knowledge of how the system works and why legal representation is important.

If you would like to be involved, please fill out the form below. Thank you for your interest in the Counsel for Kids campaign!
