Since March 2020, reports of child maltreatment have dropped, confirming what many low-income parents have always suspected: the system of child welfare in the U.S. disproportionately targets parents of color. Our Child Puppet (2021), EVC’s youth-produced film, details the effects of the foster care system not only on those parents, but their children, resulting in the foster care-to-prison pipeline, and in unequal care for Black and Brown children.
Support our youth producers and watch the trailer!
