The Abolitionists

By The Imprint

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 2020https://bit.ly/2TEack3Los Angeles County Weighs a Transformative Model for Youth Justicehttps://bit.ly/3oIr9s0Coming Soon to Congress: Discussion on Child Support Clawbackhttps://bit.ly/3oJjvgHWhat It Means to Abolish Child Welfare As We Know Ithttps://bit.ly/31U7lrGThe Research Doesn’t Support Child Welfare Abolitionhttps://bit.ly/3kjM6qFAbolishing Policing Also Means Abolishing Family Regulationhttps://bit.ly/37Y8aDQ
