June 6-7th, a Family Affair was held. This was the first time in 3 years that CFPs had the opportunity to all get together in one location. Almost 30 of us were able to make it to this event and we were able to invite a family member we have been working with. This year’s theme was “Empowerment, Engagement, and Education”. We all came away inspired by the family stories that were shared, as well as empowering words from our keynote speaker, Dr. Simone Thomas of Memphis. She is the founder and executive director of the Roots and Wings Education Project. There were several opportunities to network with one another and get to hear some of our personal journeys. During the event the CFP Toolkit was unveiled. Each participant was able to take a copy home with them. Hopefully, we will be able to offer something like this again in the future.
