Dear Friends in the Fight:
This is a post from a comment received by Trina Clay, a student with Seattle Central Community College. Please consider completing the survey. We have some hope that future leaders of our community, such as college students interested in pursuing a career that might put them in direct contact with CPS activities, might drive positive change.
Below is Ms. Clay’s original request through my website. Please note I have not verified any information provided below, but was able to link Ms. Clay’s signature below with her professional credentials.
Thank you and my prayers for you always.

***This survey has been revised so that everyone has the ability to provide some feedback***
Across the country, children of color are present in the child welfare system at rates greater than their proportions in the population. This over-representation is referred to as “racial disproportionality.” In Washington State, a 2004 study of the child welfare system in King County found that American Indian (Indian) and Black children were overrepresented at all points in the system. This “racial disproportionality” is the reason many children of color are unnecessarily removed from their homes, and causing a struggle in the families reunification process. If you have been impacted by the child welfare system, please take a brief moment to complete this 10 question survey.
Your responses will be treated confidentially and will not be used for any purpose other than to conduct research on the Child Welfare System. Accordingly, any information you provide in respect will not be used in any way that is inconsistent with the purpose of this online survey. No information obtained from this survey will be disclosed to any outside parties. I intend to provide a report on my findings to my Quantitative Principles class at Seattle Central Community College. Please feel free to share the link to others who may have been impacted as well.

This survey is an assignment that will assist me in completing my Bachelor’s degree. I thank you in advance for your participation.
