ROCMove = Revolution of Care Movement

Transforming foster care by changing the media landscape.

ROCMove was initiated by alumni of Peace4Kids: where generations of people who have navigated foster care and life beyond have found a home. 

We are intergenerational leaders with firsthand foster care experience, distinct expertise and direct stakes in creating a healthier culture and experience for young people in care. Our goals are ambitious: to confront media bias and reframe public perception of people with experience in foster care.

Given the magnitude of the "foster care problem," our proximity to a major media landscape, and commitment to addressing injustices: ROCMove was born. ROCMove_Logo.webp


Here's how we're creating impact:


"Changing The Narrative" Research

How does media shape how people perceive youth in foster and adoptive care? Over a series of media analysis, surveys, focus groups, and more, we examine the interplay between media, the public, and foster care. Explore our groundbreaking research that's driving a paradigm shift in bias surrounding youth in foster care.
