Adoption and Safe Families Act (ASFA)

ASFA is the umbrella that has helped implement mandating reporting and other tools of destruction to break up black and brown families. 

It requires States to file for termination of parental rights (TPR) once children have been in foster care for 15 of the most recent 22 months,  and encourages States to expedite TPR in specific situations of severe harm inflicted on children

We dismantle the system by  targeting and weakening legislation that holds these discriminatory practices in place.
