The American Rescue Plan Act of 2021 includes a historic one-year expansion of the Child Tax Credit (CTC), providing much-needed concrete support to families with children. Please join us for a webinar on Thursday, May 13, 2021 from 3:00-4:00 pm EDT, to learn about the benefit as well as steps we can take to ensure that this expanded benefit reaches the children who need it most, including children in Black, Latinx, Indigenous, and immigrant communities, and is made permanent. We will also hear from the Center for the Study of Social Policy (CSSP) and the Children’s Trust Fund Alliance about new resources and opportunities related to Strengthening Families.

Tuesday, May 18 from 5:00PM – 6:00PM ET | How We End UP: Black Feminist Dreams for the Future
This webinar is a product of the upEND Movement.
Abolishing the family policing system requires the creation of another world and the reimagining, or remembering, of care. As Black feminism instructs, the liberatory project of abolition requires the making of a society that is free of all systems of oppression. Thus, this webinar will address how Black feminist theory and understandings, including reproductive justice, guide us toward the abolition of the family policing system and envision a society where children, families, and communities are no longer over surveilled by state systems and have what they need to live freely and abundantly.
