Systems Babies: David Rothenberg Interviews Barry Campbell and Casimiro Torres

October 8, 2023 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm

In-person and online!

Co-sponsored by our friends at The Fortune Society, this Sunday Platform will explore the experiences of so-called “systems babies,” or children who grew up under state custody such as foster care and spent most of their ensuing years in and out of state systems.

Barry Campbell and Casimiro Torres will reflect on their childhoods in state custody. They’ll talk about the army of other children they met, being led to a life of alienation, distrust and prison, and how they broke the cycle. The Fortune Society’s founder David Rothenberg facilitates the discussion.
