The Department of Children and Family Services have scheduled a series of community meetings to discuss the number of children who have died while being monitored by the agency.
Tuesday is the first one being held.
Heads turned to the agency after the death of Aniya Day-Garrett, age 4, who died suddenly at a residence on March 11.
The child died from head injury complications and suffered from malnutrition.
Her mother, Sierra Day and mom’s boyfriend Deonte Lewis were arrested and charged with aggravated murder.
Tuesday’s community meeting will give the public a chance to speak with DCFS leaders to learn more about child protection laws and policies and procedures.
The agency hopes to hold at least five community forums by the end of June.
