How We EndUp: A Future Without Family Policing Convening

The UpEnd Movement is holding its 2nd 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.  The conference will commence with a keynote presentation by Derecka Purnell, human rights lawyer, organizer, and author of Becoming Abolitionist, in conversation with scholar, social justice activist and author of the seminal book Shattered Bonds: The Color of Child Welfare, Dorothy Roberts.  It will bring these voices together to explore how we can move toward abolition of family policing—how we can dismantle harmful, racist systems and build different ways of caring for one another.

The conference will be held October 26-27 from 1:00-4:15pm Tuesday and Wednesday.  It’s approved for 3 CAFL CLEs each day and you can register here.
