Already cried at work
Welcome to dennys
Please share this post and become a MEMBER at http://lakotalaw.org/donate-new to effect permanent change for the Lakota children.
The Lakota People’s Law Project and the Lakota tribes of South Dakota have been working on achieving the permanent solution to the corruption of South Dakota’s Department of Social Services by rerouting federal money from the state and getting it directly to the tribes. For this to happen the Lakota tribes will have to overcome many hurdles and organize their own foster care and other family planning programs.
Although we have worked on this struggle for over 8 years, we are finally breaking through and creating the system that will prevent Lakota children from being kidnapped by the state of South Dakota and taken from their communities. 8 of the 9 Lakota tribes have applied for federal funding to assist them in planning for the installation of these programs and the Department of Justice, in conjunction with the ACLU, has just released an amicus brief supporting the Lakota children and condemning the practices of South Dakota. The full brief can be read here: https://turtletalk.files.wordpress.com/2014/08/122-1amicusbriefoftheunitedstates8-14-2014.pdf
Please help make this solution a reality by donating to help the Lakota children remain with their families!
Isn’t it funny, though, how white parents can have their nine year old child shoot an Uzi at a firing range and kill a man, pretty much guaranteeing that she will suffer from PTSD from the rest of her life, and there are not only no criminal charges against the parents for gross neglect, but not even a whisper of discussion of CPS getting involved? And meanwhile, Native American children are torn from their homes and families basically on the basis of being poor and brown? Isn’t that funny?
No? It’s not?
