Amelia Franck MeyerDr. Amelia Franck Meyer is the founder and CEO of the national non-profit, Alia: innovations for people and systems impacted by childhood trauma. Amelia and Team Alia are leading a national movement to keep children safe with, not from, their families.

Alia works with child welfare leaders who are innovators and early adapters in jurisdictions around the country and the globe to create transformational change child welfare. The new way of work is referred to as an “UnSystem;” although we don’t know what the new way will eventually be called, we know it’s not this system.

Team Alia’s work falls into two categories: Evolutionary—building the capacity for change and Revolutionary—co-designing new ways to keep families safely together.

Alia’s Evolutionary work is accomplished through workforce wellbeing, change strategy, preparing and protecting leaders, teaching systems to how to get older youth to permanency and building empathic and trauma-informed care into child welfare practices. Alia’s Revolutionary work is done working in partnership with youth, families, communities and systems leaders to co-create the conditions that obsolete the need for family separation. Alia accomplishes its work using an anti-racist approach and co-designs new ways of work with youth, families and communities using Human Centered Design. Alia’s approach is to live our value of “Doing what love would do.”
