Black, Native, and, in many jurisdictions, Latinx children are surveilled, policed, and disproportionately removed by the child welfare system.

That’s why we launched the upEND Movement.

The upEND Movement works to keep ALL families together.

We’re reimagining a society in which the forcible separation of children from their families is no longer an acceptable solution for families in need.

We view the safety and protection of children as resting with families and communities first.

The upEND Movement calls for the abolition of foster care and the child welfare system.

We’re working to dismantle and end harmful practices and racist policies.

The upEND Movement works to implement anti-racist policies and practices that safely keep children with their families and in their communities.
