Speaker’s Task Force on Adoption holds first public hearing at UW-Green Bay

A bipartisan group of state representatives hopes to learn more about the barriers that make child adoption challenging in Wisconsin. The committee’s first public hearing was held Tuesday, July 2, 2019 at UW-Green Bay. UW-Green Bay faculty provided feedback.

“Children need their parents. The question is how do we protect a child who may think developmentally that’s my mom even if mom is doing something abusive? They’re not necessarily going to protect themselves, and that becomes our job,” said Joan Groessl, Chair of UW-Green Bay’s Social Work program.
