The CAFL Racial Justice Task Force (RJTF) cordially invites you to this year’s Fall Meeting with Roxanna Asgarian, author of We Were Once a Family: A Story of Love, Death, and Child Removal in America. The book investigates the case of a white couple, who drove off a cliff and committed murder-suicide with their six adopted Black children. And through years of research and interviews, journalist Roxanna Asgarian shines a light on a child welfare system that refused to see the abuse suffered by these children prior to their murder.
The book has been called, “A harrowing account…[and] a powerful critique of [the] foster care system…We Were Once a Family is a wrenching book” by The New York Times, and “A riveting indictment of the child welfare system…[A] bracing gut punch of a book” by The Washington Post.
We hope you can join us via Zoom on Thursday, September 21, 2023, from 5-7pm, to learn more about what RJTF has been doing and engage in this book discussion with author Roxanna Asgarian. Please register in advance for the discussion to access the zoom link as there are only 100 spots. The first 25 registrants will receive a free copy of the book and we hope that you all have ample time to read her work prior to September 21st and come with your questions for a candid conversation with the author.
