In its Innocents Lost series, the Miami Herald painstakingly details how 477 children were killed over a period of six years--despite documented warnings to the state Department of Children and Families. Now, leaders in Tallahassee are calling for child welfare reforms.

Join guest hosts Sammy Mack and Gina Jordan of WLRN, sitting in for Tom Hudson, for a conversation with the journalists who exposed these deaths and the people tasked with protecting children in dangerous homes.

Guests include Carol Marbin Miller and Audra Burch of the Miami Herald, Margie Menzel of the News Service of Florida, Gilda Ferradaz of the Department of Children and Families, Representative Gayle Harrell (R-Stuart), and Frances Allegra of Our Kids.

And share your thoughts here during the show in an online discussion curated by our digital editor Maria Murriel.
