Amanda Wallace


Amanda received her Bachelor’s of Social Work from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. With a 10-year career as a Child Abuse Investigator, Amanda worked throughout several counties in North Carolina. While working on the frontlines protecting children from Abuse and Neglect, Amanda simultaneously protected families from the oppressive Child Protection System. Watching the rights of families decrease and the power of CPS increase, Amanda realized that she had become the silent enforcer for an oppressive system.  It was then that Amanda understood the system and the perceived power given to CPS by society. This insider knowledge will truly help families understand how to STOP CPS. The lack of knowledge of the system makes fear a natural response when families encounter CPS. That same fear fosters compliance with unlawful and unethical CPS policies. This guide is an apology to families on behalf of the system by acknowledging the problem and giving the solution directly to those who need it: “FAMILIES”.

“You MUST protect YOUR Culture, YOUR Rights, YOUR Family”-Amanda Wallace
