International Parent Advocacy Network
IPAN aims to increase the power of parents impacted by child protective systems. We support parents and organizations that mobilize against excessive surveillance and family separation through state care and adoption. IPAN works to empower parents around the world, so that their voices are heard and their rights protected.
Toolkit for Transformation
This online resource was created for parent advocates
and their allies wishing to start a parent-led movement for change. The toolkit provides an accessible resource for parent advocates and their allies to learn from the experiences of other parent advocates and programs, and access resources that other organizations and advocates have created.
