Trigger Warning: per usual, this episode will include descriptions of violence against children and delve heavily into the systemically racist foundation of United States fostercare

This is (hands down) our favorite episode and we could not be more thrilled to release it from the vault it's been waiting in since July. We are soo grateful to Erin McGuinness for her invaluable education.

Children's Rights began as a project of the New York Civil Liberties Union and, later, the American Civil Liberties Union, and in 1995 became an independent nonprofit organization. We have won landmark legal victories in Connecticut, Georgia, Michigan, Mississippi, New Jersey, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Washington, DC and Wisconsin and engaged in advocacy efforts that are changing the way child welfare is practiced in the United States. Children’s Rights is proving that failing child welfare systems not only can be fixed, but can be made to run well.

Did you know that 53% of "black families" will be targeted and traumatized by a CPS intervention? We didn't either. It's time to face this Shadow and self educate. 

And if you happen to notice where we edited content out, please understand that we candidly discussed open legal cases and this is why we waited to release this episode - we just couldn't wait anymore. Our allies with Children's Rights will update us on the content we have to shh until then. 

So for those of you wondering what rights children have in the United States, join us.
