Although children of color comprise only 42 percent of the nation’s youth, nearly 60 percent of children in foster care are from minority families. Studies show there is also a disparity in how Native and African-American children are treated while in foster care.

Online chat: Toni Lodge, executive director of the NATIVE Project and NATIVE Health, will answer questions about foster care and substance abuse from 1-3 p.m. Send questions now to news@spokesman.com or join us live at spokesmanreview.com/ourkids.
