Subject:Re: Measuring racism

I would also recommend looking at the literature surrounding the Multiethnic Placement Act of 1994 and “The Racial Disproportionality Movement in Child Welfare: False Facts and Dangerous Directions.” by Elizabeht Bartholet (http://www.law.harvard.edu/faculty/bartholet/RD_AZ_Final.pdf).

My organization’s Issue Paper, Child Welfare and Race, has citations for multiple studies. It’s available online at http://bit.ly/ckKv7M Some of the most important work in the field is being done by the Center for the Study of Social Policy. See in particular their Michigan Race Equity Review, available here: http://bit.ly/hnJR3j And while not a study, I highly recommend NPR’s recent three-part series on the impact of child protective services on Native Americans in South Dakota, available here: http://n.pr/uHDskg Richard Wexler Executive Director National Coalition for Child Protection Reform 53 Skyhill Road (Suite 202) Alexandria VA 22314 Office: (703) 212-2006 Cell: (703) 380-4252 www.nccpr.org Richard Wexler Executive Director National Coalition for Child Protection Reform 53 Skyhill Road (Suite 202) Alexandria VA 22314 703-212-2006 www.nccpr.org In a message dated 11/18/2011 9:34:12 A.M.
