LaShawn Infographic: The Final Chapter

In 1989, the American Civil Liberties Union (later Children’s Rights, Inc.) filed the LaShawn A. v. Barry lawsuit over the quality of services the District of Columbia was providing to abused and neglected children in its care. Today, the District is working to meet all requirements of an Implementation and Exit Plan (IEP) negotiated in December 2010, so that Federal Court will return control of local child welfare to the city.
