The 4th Annual 90by30 Conference                   March 11, 2016

The Strengthening Communities Institute        March 12, 2016

The first-ever joint Institute with LCC's Family Connections of Lane and Douglas Counties will be held at the Lane Community College Center for Meeting and Learning.

Event Highlights:

  • Judy Langford, Associate Director of the Center for the Study of Social Policy (CSSP), will present at both events on the history and development of CSSP's Protective Factor Framework, which helps families succeed and thrive even in the face of risks and challenges.
  • At the Conference, the next installment of 90by30's "What Would We Do Lane County?" video project will suggest creative, proactive responses to the real-life dilemmas examined at last year's Conference.
  • At the Institute, local keynote presenter Elaine Walters, Director of the Trauma Healing Project, will discuss building resilience as a tool for prevention. Attendees will select one protective factor to explore more deeply in a two-hour training session.
  • Local arts, music and poetry will inspire us to play our part in creating safe and nurturing communities for all children.
  • An interactive "Play Your Part" segment will bring together 90by30 and Family Connections attendees to create a county-wide movement in which every person and group has a way to support children and families.

"We believe there is a role for each of us to end child abuse."
