Protecting our children, Defending our rights – UK & US

Ending “child welfare’s” massive and heartless removal of children
from low-income mothers and families, often children of colour. 

  • LAUNCH of UK and US self-help guides for mothers and other primary caregivers struggling to protect our children from arbitrary state removal, forced adoptions, and violent fathers.
  • LAUNCH of new research based on casework in the UK over the past four years: who is being targeted, the reasons given, impact on children, mothers’ personal experiences of going through sexist, racist, disablist and class biased family courts.
  • LAUNCH of Support Not Separation in the US which brings together campaigners coast to coast.

Panel includes:

Mothers from different communities in UK and US
