Welcome to Collective Power: we are out to transform trauma system-wide by presenting a mirror of the system to itself.

Each week, we focus on one system. Each show we hear from a person who has an experience of one aspect of that system. On the last show each month, we bring folks back together to look at the big picture and what is possible for our city, our country and our world.

Jeannette Vega

Equity and Parent Advocacy Chair

I am a proud mother of four boys and a proud parent advocate in NYC. I had my own personal experience with child welfare in 1999 and it was over in 2002. I started contributing to Rise in 2008 and began as a Training Director in 2018. I specialize in presenting parents’ perspectives to child welfare professionals and training other parents to become advocates. I lead Rise’s work consulting with the Administration for Children’s Services and other agencies on their internal staff trainings. I graduated from the Child Welfare Organizing Project’s Parent Leadership Training in 2005 and was one of the first parent advocates to staff Child Safety Conferences in New York City.

Joy Strategy: Have the weekend for those that matter the most to me: my boys and my husband. Having our time brings me to complete happiness and peace.
