Are You A Parent Impacted By CPS?

The Problem

A failing Child “Protection” System is forcefully and disproportionately removing Black and Brown children from safe and loving homes. 

53% of all Black homes are investigated by child welfare officials. A simple knock on the door by a social worker can lead to demands to enter the home without a warrant, intense interrogations, and strip searches that often end with children traumatically being pulled from their parents arms. Over 200,000 children of color are currently in the custody of the government. 

Many of these removals happen without consent or a court order and exploit families by then requiring them to complete unnecessary services (parenting classes, drug treatment, mental health evaluations) to reunify with their children. Most, if not all, of the service providers are contracted with the Government and have a financial incentive to continue to recommend that parents comply with the unnecessary services. 

In every state, CPS essentially acts as a kidnapping gang to  keep black people powerless politically, economically and socially. Operation Stop CPS believe that the oppressive actions of CPS agencies all over the U.S. represents a symptom of colonialism, which was designed to ensure complete domination of Black people by a foreign state power. Our mission is to empower Black and Brown families to rise up and end the colonial hold of Child Protective Services, and reclaim power and control of our own children and community.
