The African American Child Welfare Act and Why We Need It Now!!!

“If ever a State agency destroyed a family, it destroyed ours.”
-Minister Malcom X

“Spend a day in the agencies that handle child maltreatment cases in these cities and you will probably see only black or Latino parents and children. If you came with no preconceptions about the purpose of the child welfare system, you would have to conclude that it is an institution designed to monitor, regulate, and punish poor families of color.”
-Professor Dorothy Roberts

Black people only make up 13 percent of the US population.
