Regardless of your funding area (youth, homelessness, education, immigration, etc.), narratives play a crucial role In advancing systems change. Some narratives, steeped in racial and social inequity, impede our work, perpetuating false choices in how we address difficult, systemic problems.
Join FrameWorks Institute in an interactive session, offering a first glimpse into the new framing strategy to shift the narrative around transition age youth in foster care. This framing strategy draws on two years of research with the public, experts, policymakers and transition age foster youth themselves. Come workshop with your peers on how this can apply to your own work.


  • Findings from a recent FrameWorks Institute report on the reframing strategy for shifting the public discourse on transition age foster youth
  • How frame elements can be used in various types of communications and for different audiences
  • The core elements of reframing strategies (different explanatory metaphors, values, or ways of offering message components)
  • Examples from other reframing campaigns that will help you apply this strategy to your own work and issue areas
