Our second annual convening of organizers, activists, scholars, and community leaders who are committed to dismantling the family policing system,* a system predicated on the subjugation, surveillance, control, and punishment of mostly poor Black and Native children and families. We will gather virtually from 1:00pm – 4:15pm ET on October 26 and 27 (with additional time to be in community directly before and after the program) to explore the ideas set forth in How We endUP, a document released on June 18, 2021, the one-year anniversary of the launch of the upEND Movement. Join us to strategize how we can, in community, improve support and care for children, youth, and families as we move towards the abolition of family policing.

*The upEND Movement has adopted the term family policing system to refer to the child welfare system.
