This coming Thursday, the Miami Herald and WLRN will host a town hall meeting to discuss Innocents Lost, the investigative series that looked at 477 Florida child deaths by abuse or neglect that occurred over a six-year span.
All of the 477 were from families that had previously come to the attention of the Florida Department of Children & Families, which is tasked with protecting vulnerable children.
Lawmakers, DCF officials and child advocates will be present to discuss solutions. The Herald reporters who wrote the series will also participate.
The event starts at 6 p.m. at Miami Herald headquarters, 3511 NW 91st Ave., Doral, 33172.
Space is limited. Please RSVP via email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
