Standing up for Parents in Family Court, with Judge Ernestine Gray
During her time as a family court judge, foster care rates in her city dropped to just 10% of the national average. How did she do it?
This week, Michael talks with former judge Ernestine Gray, who served for 35 years in the Orleans Parish Juvenile Court in Louisiana. Judge Gray explains how she prioritized preserving families and parent-child relationships in her court, and how she helped parents find community resources and support, rather than immediately revoking their rights.
