The Abolitionists

On this week’s podcast we look at a few interesting ballot initiatives that voters will decide on tomorrow, the plan to rewrite juvenile justice in Los Angeles, and how child support is used by states to offset the cost of welfare and foster care. Our guests this week are Alan Dettlaff and Kristen Weber, co-founders of the upEND Movement, a partnership that is calling for the abolition of foster care and the child welfare system as we know it. Reading RoomWhat’s On the Ballot for Youth and Families in 2020 Angeles County Weighs a Transformative Model for Youth Justice Soon to Congress: Discussion on Child Support Clawback It Means to Abolish Child Welfare As We Know It Research Doesn’t Support Child Welfare Abolition Policing Also Means Abolishing Family Regulation
