Thank you for all the work you do each and every day for the
children, youth, families, schools, and communities of
California. As schools reopen, as we all prepare for summer, and
as we continue to support the healing and recovery of those we
serve and who need it most, we and those we serve also continue
to endure so much.
We are heartbroken by acts of violence involving law enforcement,
students, and community members in Minnesota, Virginia, and
Tennessee. We acknowledge that these acts can add to the trauma
and stress that already exists for those we serve. We hope you
find useful resources below to support staff, children, youth,
and families through these challenging times.
At CAN we will not rest until we attain equitable, just
communities, where everyone is well known, well cared for, and
prepared to thrive. We know that our efforts to advance positive
youth development are only truly attainable when they take place
in the context of these more equitable conditions. We remain
committed to our advocacy and technical assistance to support
safe, equitable, culturally relevant, anti-racist environments
for thriving children and families. We thank you for all
you do every day to do the same.
