Addressing Child Welfare Disproportionality in Minnesota, with Joanna Woolman

This week, Joanna Woolman returns to the podcast! Joanna is an associate professor of law at the Mitchell Hamline School of Law and the executive director of the Institute to Transform Child Protection. Today, Joanna tells us about a civil rights complaint brought forward to address the disproportionality of African American children in Minnesota’s child welfare system, as well as the African American Family Preservation Act, a bill introduced to address the racial disproportionality and provide better oversight and stricter removal standards for Minnesota’s child welfare system overall. 

The EPPiC Broadcast is hosted by Michael Ramey, president of the Parental Rights Foundation. You can sign up for email alerts to keep yourself informed on parental rights news at
