Activist Dialogues: How Domestic Violence and Child Welfare Systems Impact Women of Color and Their Communities
Chic Dabby, Angela Autry
The Activist Dialogues originated from the Greenbook and its Policy Advisory Committee, projects of the National Council of Juvenile and Family Court Judges. The Greenbook was published in 1999 under its original title, Effective Intervention in Domestic Violence and Child Maltreatment Cases: Guidelines for Policy and Practice.1 The document offers recommendations designed to address the co-occurrence of child abuse and domestic violence. It also aims to strengthen the understanding and capacity of primary systems — dependency courts, child protective services and domestic violence service providers. In 2001, federal agencies collaborated to establish six demonstration sites designed to implement these recommendations.
