Rosie Gullet will be graduating this June from Rosemary Anderson Alternative High School in Portland. She is in foster care.
- This year marks the 200th anniversary of the birth of Frederick Douglass. Linfield College is hosting a symposium exploring the importance of Douglass in American history. Scholar David Blight is working on a new biography of Douglass and shares his insights with us.
- In our occasional series on Oregon’s child welfare system, we sit down with two people who experienced foster care themselves. We talk with Chérie Renee Hawes, who grew up in the child welfare system in Oregon. She’s 31, and has recently started a blog to tell her story — and the story of her foster parents, who she calls mom and dad. Rosie Gullet is 17 and still in the foster care system.
