The Family Council hosts calls for the community to learn about how white supremacy and other interlocking systems of oppression impact families in our community. Using BIPOC-authored resources to guide these conversations, the Council hopes to help cultivate a commitment to fighting oppression for all who attend.

Policy Advocacy for Families
Generations Forward works to increase resources and supports for local families through policy advocacy. Our Policy, Advocacy, and Funding (PAF) Action Team meets regularly to collaborate in advancing local policies to support all Whatcom County families. We also work with the national Building Community Resilience (BCR) Collaborative to participate in state and national policy advocacy. We always welcome more community voices to this work; send us an email to plug in!
