07/20/15- On Monday’s Topical Currents we visit with a child welfare advocate who started her work early: at age 14.
Ashley Rhodes-Courter entered Florida’s foster care system at age three. She was shuttled between 14 foster homes—some abusive–before adoption at age 12. She’s written two remarkable memoirs and is in the forefront of the child welfare movement. We’ll hear her story Monday, at 1pm.
