Protest planned over child welfare agencies

Protest planned over child welfare agencies

After Becky Welk's successful fight to adopt her foster daughter was described in a Journal Sentinel story last week, she said, hundreds of parents, foster parents and others contacted her about their own concerns and frustrations with the state's child welfare system.

"The response has been unbelievable," Welk said.

Now she's tried to marshal that concern into a protest Wednesday morning outside the Bureau of Child Welfare's Region 3 office, 2745 S. 13th St. The demonstration is to demand that employees at the bureau and the state Department of Children and Families be held publicly accountable when children are killed or injured while in foster care.
