Parenting for Liberation is a Black-led organization that supports and uplifts Black families.
Over the last two years, Parenting for Liberation has been working on a blind removal bill in California which would help #keepblackfamiliestogether and we need your support!
Blind removals is a process where social workers or judges would decide whether to remove a child from their home without knowing the family’s race or other identifying information that could lead to bias.
The bill, now AB 2665, proposes that the State Department of Social Services on or before July 1, 2023, establish a three-year pilot program for the purpose of addressing racial disparities in the child welfare system in up to five voluntary counties. This is a significant step in the direction of longer term change.
We are collecting stories from Black folks around their experiences with Child Protective Services. Your story will be used to advocate for change in California.
