The Fedele F. and Iris M. Fauri Memorial Lecture on child welfare is presented annually in recognition of the former University of Michigan Dean and Vice President Fedele F. Fauri and his wife, Iris. Dean Fauri's leadership and accomplishments in the field of child welfare spanned nearly 50 years.
For this year's conference, we will focus on dynamics underlying child trafficking in and across local and global contexts. We will examine how and where child trafficking occurs; who is most vulnerable, and conditions under which child exploitation and trafficking place victims at risk. Experts will also speak about the consequences of child trafficking, measures taken to protect vulnerable children, and potential solutions to this enduring, global problem. In their remarks, panelists will integrate research and practice to inform policy at the local, state, national, and international levels.
CE Contact Hours Available.

This discussion is co-sponsored by the University of Michigan Ford School of Public Policy's Poverty Solutions.
From the cash bail system, to fines and fees while incarcerated, to the cost of reentering society, our society functions on a punitive system of fines and fees that often catapults those already experiencing hardship into a spiraling cycle of debt and repayments - never fully able to catch up. Join us as we explore the inequity surrounding fines and fees in our criminal justice system and its role in increasing race-based disparities. Featured panelists include Washtenaw County Prosecutors Eli Savit and Victoria Burton-Harris; and Dr. Meghan O’ Neil, Research Scholar at the Population Studies Center, Institute for Social Research. This panel will be facilitated by MSW Student and Co-founder of Michigan Liberation, Nicholas Buckingham.Event Recording
