EXPOSE CPS PLATFORM
The coalition is protesting the egregious actions habitually taken by CPS, and the Courts, for years, in taking children from their families without merit and justification. The abuse of children while in the hands of CPS. The death and harm of numerous children, due to CPS failure of proper oversight and accountability. The culture of bias, collusion, and systemic racism which pervades CPS and the Family Courts, has become the normal way of doing business. Especially for African American families.
This is a reality that we of the Justice Reform Coalition know and live with all the time. It is a major focus point for our organization as it is 60% of all the cases that we look at and are asked to help with. Of those cases 80% at least involve CPS (Child Protective Services). The incentivized system of funding and reward , coupled with NO oversight, has developed into an organized criminal racket, of human trafficking of children. The unrestrained power given the CPS has given them the muscle to threaten, terrorize, coerce and harass families and parents into submission and compliance, and punish those who question the abuse.
We have put together a platform with other advocates and organizations to begin to address community concerns and the lack of any oversite in this matter. The following bullet points are meant to be an introduction to the issues and recommendations on the CPS-Family Court problem especially plaquing our poor, minority, and Black community families. It's time to give these issues the attention they disserve and fix them.
This is just an over view. We await your response and questions.
