About the event

Promoting Positive Change in Communities by Confronting Poverty

Louisiana CASA is excited to host our third webinar series. This series is brought to you in partnership with the Louisiana Children's Trust Fund so we are required to ask participants certain demographic questions during registration. Once you register, an email will be sent to you that includes the link to join the webinar. We hope to see you there!

Disproportionality and Poverty

Poverty intersects with other social determinants, such as racism and classism, creating structural vulnerabilities and evidence indicates impoverished children are disproportionality affected by maltreatment. Poverty, especially when combined with factors like parental depression, substance use, and social isolation, significantly increases the risk of child maltreatment. The presentation will discuss how these low-resource conditions contribute to disparities and why children from lower socioeconomic backgrounds, race, and ethnicity face closer scrutiny and affect child maltreatment reports.
