Louisiana Women: Marketa Garner Walters, DCF Secretary advocating for children and families.

BATON ROUGE, LA (BRPROUD) – Marketa Garner Walters has been advocating for children her entire life, and while her career has taken many different paths her message has always remained the same…. She’s helped establish a number of programs including the Quality Parenting Initiative, Louisiana Fosters and raised the age of foster care to 21. “All of that resifted what foster care looks like in Louisiana and made it better whether you’re a little child coming in or whether you’re a 19-year-old trying to figure out how to navigate in the world.”
