Disparity is unfair or unequal treatment of one racial or ethnic group as compared to another. Disparities can occur at any point in the child welfare system and contribute to disproportionality and less successful outcomes.

National CASA is committed to reducing disproportionality and ensuring equitable outcomes for all children through ongoing racial equity efforts. Read more about National CASA's commitment to equity for children.
