2 eq ui ty \ noun \`e-kw -te \ fairness or justice in the way peope are treated

3 LETTERS FROM LEADERSHIP One of the reasons I am and have been deighted to serve as chair of the Center for the Study of Socia Poicy s (CSSP s) board of directors is the organization s unwavering commitment to socia justice. That commitment is exempified in the focus of CSSP s eadership and staff on ideas and actions to produce better futures for a chidren, youth and famiies. Given that goa, it is impossibe not to confront the equity issues that prevent too many in our society from achieving their fu potentia every day. In examining the issues affecting the we-being of chidren and youth invoved with chid wefare and juvenie justice systems, schoo achievement resuts, famiy economic stabiity and disinvested communities, data point to significant gaps based on race, triba status, ethnicity, immigrant status and other characteristics that separate vunerabe popuations. These effects are compounded when there are aso differences based on anguage and/or sexua orientation and gender identity. In the 2013 annua report, we highight how critica attention to equity and the persistent gaps in achievement and outcomes shows up in a of CSSP s work. Whether working with a pubic system, a federa poicymaker or in a oca community, CSSP examines the issues with an equity perspective and articuates poicy and program soutions that seek to cose the gaps and produce better resuts for a. Last year, CSSP intensified its equity focus internay and externay. This work wi continue into the future. CSSP s board of directors affirms the direction of the CSSP eadership, staff and partners for taking steps to remedy some of the most important socia justice issues of our times as documented in this annua report. We are peased to share our 2013 annua report with you. It represents work CSSP staff are deepy committed to and that we beieve is integra to achieving the heath, income, education and we-being outcomes we desire for chidren, famiies and communities. Equity equaity in opportunity and in what it takes to achieve good outcomes has been part of CSSP s mission from its eariest days. And, for the ast 10 years, we have raised up equity specificay race equity as an even more visibe and expicit focus of CSSP and its work. In 2004, we began an interna diaogue and earning process to ensure that our community, systems and poicy work aways aim to reduce disparities based on race, ethnicity, income, anguage capacity, sexua orientation and gender identity, among other differences. We want our work to expicity promote better outcomes for those individuas who are most systematicay eft behind. Another goa of CSSP s focus on equity inseparabe from the first is to buid our own awareness, skis, comfort and organizationa carity around addressing structura racism, institutionaized oppression and other isms that hod peope back. Identifying ourseves as an anti-racist organization, we have sought to be cear about our aim and to inspire and invite partners to join us in this work. Poicy and poitica discussions about inequity and inequaity are now cose to the center of nationa debate. As our federa, state and oca partners themseves grappe with this chaenge and work to reverse negative trends, we renew CSSP s commitment to that urgent strugge. We hope this report heps articuate just some of this ongoing journey toward greater equity. Caro Wison Spigner, M.S.W., D.S.W. BOARD CHAIR Frank Farrow DIRECTOR Judith W. Metzer DEPUTY DIRECTOR

5 INTRODUCTION COMMUNITY CHANGE CSSP THEORY OF CHANGE ecoogica perspective buiding capacity to Create Opportunities co-invested constituents Buid Protective/Promotive Factors chid, famiy & community we-being buiding capacity to POLICY CHANGE race equity & socia justice buiding capacity to Reduce Risk Factors resuts-based anaysis SYSTEMS CHANGE A chidren regardess of race, ethnicity, gender, sexua orientation, gender identity, socioeconomic status or the neighborhood in which they ive deserve to be heathy, to enter schoo ready to earn and to become young aduts who are prepared to succeed in ife and in the word. Growing up in safe, supportive, nurturing and economicay secure famiies and in communities that can provide them and their famiies with access to the resources and opportunities they need, puts a chidren on the path to success. The Center for the Study of Socia Poicy (CSSP) works to achieve chid, famiy and community we-being resuts by focusing our efforts on improving pubic systems, promoting effective state and oca pubic poicy strategies and buiding capacity for positive community change. There are severa key perspectives that cut across a of our work a focus on outcomes, the interpay among individua, famiy, community, system and society and true co-investment from the peope and communities we are working with. Another perspective that is integra to every aspect of our work is equity. Programs, poices and strategies must expicity understand and account for the existence of disparate opportunities and outcomes based on race, ethnicity, gender, sexua orientation/gender identity and many other factors. Recognizing these inequities and working to address them is the ony way to meet the needs of individuas, as we as broader societa goas. CSSP is committed to working toward the eimination of poicies, practices, attitudes and cutura messages that reinforce differentia outcomes by race or other factors, or fai to eiminate them. WHY FOCUS ON EQUITY? Achieving equity in opportunity and outcomes is core to socia and economic success. If the current disparities in education, heath, empoyment and socia and economic mobiity continue we wi ose the opportunity to capitaize on the advantages of our increasingy diverse popuation. To ensure the socia and economic growth of our country and to improve outcomes for our chidren and famiies the pubic, private and nonprofit sectors must advance equity at every eve. This annua report highights the roe of equity in the work CSSP undertook in It aso offers recommendations for pubic system administrators, poicymakers and community stakehoders to address current and prevent future inequities Annua Report

6 CSSP Equity Statement Equity is centra to CSSP s mission and vaues. We work to promote equity and reduce disparities based on race, ethnicity, sovereignty, gender, sexua orientation/gender identity and socioeconomics. Recognizing the centra roe that race has payed historicay in contributing to persistent inequities, CSSP identifies as an anti-racist organization committed to confronting and addressing a forms of racism, particuary institutiona and structura Annua Report 7

7 FOSTER CARE RATE BY RACE/ETHNICITY PER 1,000 CHILDREN IN THE CHILD POPULATION RAISING UP EQUITY IN SYSTEM REFORM A key component of CSSP s work with pubic systems is a focus on making sure chidren grow up in famiies and that they are not separated from their famiies uness absoutey necessary. When they must be, efforts to hea their famiy must be swift and effective. A chidren, youth and famiies shoud have the opportunity to be happy, heathy and successfu. SYSTEM REFORM American Indian/ Aaskan Native Hawaiian/ Other Pacific Isander 5.52 Back or African American 9.95 Hispanic or Latino 4.78 Chidren shoud be supported sociay and emotionay. Unfortunatey, data show that too many chidren and famiies of coor have far different experiences with pubic systems. We aso know that youth who identify as esbian, gay, bisexua, transgender or questioning (LGBTQ) may aso have a more difficut time with chid wefare systems, eading to increased numbers of runaway and homeess youth and other poor outcomes. There are parae we-documented disparities around race and ethnicity with regard to eary education and high schoo graduation; and a famiy s socioeconomic status can aso pace chidren and famiies at a disadvantage with regard to the services and supports they have knowedge about or access to. CSSP s system reform work addresses these disparities directy, focusing on customized strategies to ensure that a chidren and famiies receive the supports needed to succeed.

Aiance for Racia Equity in Chid Wefare During the ast decade, a growing number of researchers and pubic administrators have sought to understand the extent and nature of disparities experienced by African American chidren or more broady, chidren of coor who come to the attention of the chid wefare system.

Last year, CSSP was centray focused on providing and expanding the Aiance s eadership, information resources and toos to hep support chidand famiy-serving systems as they work to understand and undo a pattern of chid and famiy racia inequities. The Aiance partners now incude chid wefare administrators, researchers, pubic poicy experts, chid and famiy court judges, as we as famiy members with direct experience of invovement with the chid wefare system. The group aso refects the varying perspectives within the chid wefare community about the roe and reevance of structura racism, famiy economic status and broader community dynamics on the persistent pattern of disparate outcomes by race and ethnicity. A conceptua framework and a common statement of vaues, aong with a comprehensive agenda, were a created in 2013 to guide the work during the next five to seven years. A specific set of priorities guide the immediate work during the next two years.

9 SYSTEM REFORM LGBTQ HOMELESS YOUTH The U.S. Congressiona Research Service estimates that the number of homeess and runaway youth ranges from 1M 1.7M per year. Avaiabe research suggests that 9% 45% of a homeess youth identify as esbian, gay, bisexua or transgender (LGBTQ). Given that 5% 7% of the U.S. popuation identifies as esbian, gay or bisexua, it is cear that LGBT youth experience homeessness at a disproportionate rate. Sources: Fernandes-Acantara, A.L. (2013).

Research has shown that LGBTQ chidren and youth have particuar hardships within the chid wefare system. Studies have aso shown that LGBTQ youth are at greater risk for homeessness, abuse, buying, trauma and sexua expoitation. Last year, CSSP aunched get R.E.A.L (Recognize. Engage. Affirm. Love), an initiative designed to hep transform chid wefare poicy and practice to promote the heathy deveopment of a chidren and youth. Twenty-one jurisdictions aready engaged in system improvements were seected in 2013 to move this work forward. Some are in very advanced stages and others are just beginning to understand the issue and think about a change process. This new nationa network wi share information and resources and provide peer training and support. The utimate goa is to create asting poicy and practice change within the nation s chid wefare and reated chid and youth serving systems to benefit LGBTQ youth. The new nationa network is just the first step toward a cuture change in both knowedge and action. CSSP is aso engaged in more intensive work in severa jurisdictions, incuding Aegheny County, Penn., the state of Caifornia and both Santa Cara and Fresno Counties. Compementing get R.E.A.L, CSSP is proud to partner with the University of Iinois at Chicago (UIC) and the Human Rights Campaign Foundation on 3/40 BLUEPRINT, a federa grant announced ast year to address homeessness among LGBTQ youth. The 3/40 BLUEPRINT project is named for its goa to reduce the estimated 40 percent of homeess youth who identify as LGBTQ within three years and hep end the nationa crisis of LGBTQ youth homeessness.

10 Fuy understanding who the youth in our juvenie justice system are and why they end up here is a critica part of successfuy doing our job. The Institutiona Anaysis process is an important part of understanding the overrepresentation of kids of coor, and we hope, heping us find ways to change it. David Rohr Fairfax County, Virginia, Poice Chief (Retired) Institutiona Anaysis - Fairfax County, Virginia The Institutiona Anaysis is a set of quaitative diagnostic toos that seek to uncover the ways in which organizationa poicies and practices contribute to poor outcomes for chidren and famiies of coor invoved in the chid wefare system. Using data and in-depth interviews, the Institutiona Anaysis examines how workers are organized to know and understand famiies, and to effectivey intervene to support them. In other words, this approach makes visibe the structures that shape, direct and determine workers actions. It aso shows how those structures can produce racia disparity, inequity and overa poorer outcomes for some chidren and famiies. In 2013, CSSP continued its work with Fairfax County, heping eaders there examine how their poicies and practices perpetuate equity gaps for Latino and African American youth in juvenie justice and chid wefare systems. As a resut of three years of work with the county and its team eading the charge, CSSP is now aso supporting a Diaogue with Directors series throughout 2013, bringing together key stakehoders to deve deeper into the Institutiona Anaysis findings and to ook for coective actions that can be taken. Whie numerous takeaways came out of ast year s directors series, one fact became cear: achieving equitabe outcomes is an everyone issue an every agency issue. In order to address that CSSP is working with Fairfax County on a range of ideas, incuding deveoping an equity bench card that wi ask eaders at a eves to consider: Who are the racia/ethnic groups affected by the poicy/practice/decision and are they at the tabe? How wi the poicy/practice/decision affect each group? How wi the poicy/practice/decision be perceived by each group? Does the poicy/practice/decision ignore or worsen existing disparities or produce other unintended consequences? Based on the above responses, what revisions are needed in the poicy/ practice/decision under discussion? SYSTEM REFORM 2013 Annua Report 11

11 SYSTEM REFORM heathy deveopment and we-being IVE Strengthening Famiies and Youth Thrive Integrated into most of CSSP s work now are Strengthening Famiies and Youth Thrive, research-informed frameworks of protective factors that can hep famiies with young chidren and youth in foster care succeed and thrive, even in the face of risks and chaenges. These factors can be appied to a famiies and youth, but CSSP understands it s important to address how these factors may be understood and manifested differenty across races and cutures. Creating a framework that appies to a heps to chaenge raciay biased perceptions about capabiities and encourages peope to ook at strengths that a peope have. Having systems and peope in genera adopt a science-informed strengths approach creates a powerfu grounding for increasing our understanding about the strengths every famiy and youth can have. It encourages more equitabe treatment of minority groups and utimatey more equitabe outcomes. Pushing service systems and communities to focus on how to buid and support famiy and youth strengths forces them out of a deficit mode of thinking to ook for positive aspects, incuding within famiies and youth of coor who are often seen as bad or disengaged. Last year, CSSP aso began reviewing and updating the Strengthening Famiies Sef-Assessments to ensure that items are incuded that refect a cutura inquiry approach (e.g., ensuring that staff are asking the right questions about how the famiy s race, anguage and cuture impact the way they view parenting and their protective factors). In Youth Thrive, CSSP searched for exempary initiatives that embodied Y O U T H THRIVE PROTECTIVE & PROMOTIVE FACTORS FOR HEALTHY DEVELOPMENT AND WELL-BEING the framework. During that process, diversity and attention to equity were key seection criteria. These themes were again highighted during a 2013 convening of the seected programs. >> WHAT NEXT? So what can system administrators and their staffs do to ensure we are moving toward a path of equity? Examine data to understand where inequities and disparities exist. This requires disaggregating data by race, ethnicity, gender and sexua orientation and gender expression. It aso requires anaysis at different decision points within systems (in chid wefare that woud incude examination of the data at reporting, substantiations, pacement, etc.; in schoos it woud incude anaysis of suspensions, grade retention, etc.). The second step invoves an anaysis of the institutiona impediments to equity (as undertaken by an Institutiona Anaysis or simiar organizationa audit). Estabish an overarching organizationa commitment to equity that is embedded in the agency s vision, mission, vaues and operations. Incorporate a focus on improving chid and famiy cognitive, socia and emotiona we-being as benchmarks for success. Buid an understanding of, and responsiveness to, the compex ways in which structura racism shapes the experiences and webeing of chidren and youth in pubic systems, incuding both impicit bias and expicit forms of racism. Impement a cuturay responsive practice strategy that is trauma-informed and refects the research findings about the protective and promotive factors that can hep youth overcome adversity and A PROTECTIVE thrive.

It impacts our famiies, neighborhoods and the ways in which we conduct business. It determines our tax rate, the ways in which our schoos are funded, the deivery of socia services and where pubic transportation and pubic infrastructure are deveoped. Diversity provides an advantage for the United States. both sociay and economicay. The growing diversity in the United States. can improve productivity and wages as we as increase entrepreneurship. These economic benefits are important not ony for communities of coor, but for a our communities. This idea is paramount to the work CSSP does in Washington, as part of poicy coaitions and through work in states across the country. CSSP beieves that meaningfu poicy requires a focus on those who face the most significant barriers to opportunity, incuding ethnic and racia minorities, immigrants and refugees and famiies in poverty. Our work is grounded in the beief that no pubic poicy is race or ethnicity neutra. Every poicy has an impact, through benefit or burden, on the ives of famiies. Pursuing poicy strategies that take into account the existence of disparate opportunities and outcomes is the best way to meet both the needs of communities of coor but aso to meet broader societa goas. Poicymaking with attention to equity creates soutions that best meet the needs of the entire community. White 32% Therefore, every CSSP poicy product has a strong focus on equity.

Unfortunatey, many communities face overwheming chaenges, incuding high poverty rates, unempoyment, housing instabiity and ow-performing schoos. Residents of these neighborhoods are disproportionatey famiies of coor who experience outcomes far worse than the norm for most Americans. The inequitabe outcomes of famiies who ive in these neighborhoods are infuenced by two important factors. First, access to opportunity is not equay distributed across the country and pubic systems and the private market do not function we for ow-income communities of coor. Second, decades of disinvestment in neighborhoods of concentrated poverty has undermined the infrastructure and capacity that these neighborhoods need to address the ack of opportunity and structura inequities they face. CSSP s pace-based work is focused on achieving better and more equitabe outcomes for famiies who ack access to opportunities many Americans take for granted. That aso means ensuring that pubic and private systems are not perpetuating existing inequities. In 2013 we worked in more than 30 communities and neighborhoods through our work on the federa Promise Neighborhoods, Buiding Neighborhood Capacity Program (BNCP) and Choice Neighborhoods work, and in Caifornia s Best Start, an effort of First 5 LA.

Mayor Ashey Swearengin, City of Fresno to buid, sustain and operationaize certain types of community capacity, such as data, partnerships and financing, among others. CSSP provides intensive consutation, capacity-buiding support and financia investment to eight neighborhoods in four cities Fint, Mich.; Fresno, Caif.; Memphis, Tenn. and Miwaukee, Wis. The goa is to hep the neighborhoods as they create comprehensive neighborhood revitaization pans and make effective use of and attract a range of federa, state and oca resources. As successfu neighborhood revitaization hinges on the support and coaboration of a variety of stakehoders, we aso work with a cross-sector partnership in each city to ensure the success and sustainabiity of the neighborhood capacity-buiding efforts. In 2013, each neighborhood with CSSP s assistance worked on engaging residents and others in order to create these rich neighborhood partnerships. Once estabished, those partnerships spent a good dea of ast year identifying the most pressing chaenges for their residents. The answer across the board? Pubic safety. A key part of CSSP s roe is to hep eaders at the neighborhood and city eves to understand and be abe to constructivey address issues of race, cass and power as part of their capacity-buiding efforts. Many BNCP neighborhoods are buiding muti-racia and ethnic coaitions as a resut of their work at the neighborhood eve and increased interactions between city eve partners and neighborhood residents. Aso during the ast year, a of the neighborhoods have continued gathering and disaggregating data to better understand the needs of a neighborhood residents. They are aso better understanding the root causes of disparate outcomes between neighborhood residents and the region as a whoe, which CSSP hopes wi ensure that the soutions in the revitaization pans meet the needs of a groups in the neighborhood particuary the most vunerabe. >> WHAT NEXT? What can communities and others with a vested interest in making pace-based changes do to address the widespread and muti-ayered inequity? They can: Assess the socia determinants of heath. Evauate the access and opportunities neighborhoods have for heathy food, safe paces to pay, etc. Incentivize businesses to set up shop in ow-income communities and encourage a businesses to hire a diverse set of residents. Invest in training and capacity buiding around issues of race, cass and power, so residents and partners are abe to recognize root causes of disparate outcomes and are abe to constructivey discuss structura Annua Report
