On October 28, 2022, the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation held a live conversation on what it means to support the whole child and family with RWJF Managing Director Jennifer Ng’andu. 

The discussion featured leaders in the field, including Naomi Walker, Vice President at the Economic Policy Institute, Rachel Ramirez from United Parent Leaders Action Network (UPLAN), and Baisha Whitten, member of RWJF’s Family Advisory Committee. 

Together, the panelists explored the power building and social change efforts needed to advance a new “social contract” with children, families and caregivers, one that will result in a more modern, long-term vision and will allow families to thrive.
