About Us

Movement for Family Power works to end the Foster System’s policing and punishment of families and to create a world where the dignity and integrity of all families is valued and supported. Our work is a small part of the broader movement to transform our foster system, and is rooted in principles of movement lawyering, abolition, the work of our elders, and the visions of our peers. We carry out our work in three ways:  1) Building out a loving, healthy community with and amongst people working to shrink the Foster System, 2) Raising social consciousness around the harms of the foster system to support the reclaiming and reimagining of safe and health families, and 3) Disrupting and curtailing foster system pipelines, reducing the level of harm inflicted by forced family separations.
