Gift and GRANT SUPPORTED Efforts

The Family Law & Policy Program has benefitted from public-public partnerships through grants supporting the work of our Scholars in Action on questions like domestic violence.  In addition, major conferences sponsored by the Program have drawn on public-private partnerships to do Conversations on the Family, explore questions of poverty, family status, and healthcare access, to do work on adoption and family formation, and to work on innovative approaches to LGBT rights.
