  • Lebanon, NJ (November 9) – Court Appointed Special Advocates of Somerset, Hunterdon, and Warren Counties (CASA SHaW) has announced that the nonprofit is hosting a series of racial equity circles for volunteers, board, and staff members.

This focus was the result of learning that a disproportionate number of black and brown children have long been overrepresented in the foster care system, despite data that suggests that child abuse and neglect is no greater in African American or Latino families than in White families.
