Poverty is Not Neglect  

Jey from our Family Integrity & Justice Works initiative is presenting at the 2022 Kempe Center International Virtual Conference.  

Ending the Tyranny of Neglect Laws: A Legal, Policy, Practice Blueprint 

October 4, 7:00 AM-8:15 AM MT 

  • Leaders in family defense, preventive legal services, and parent and policy advocacy, Jey and Diane Redleaf are presenting alongside a parent with lived experience. Poverty is not neglect, yet the child welfare system’s mandatory reporting system is oversaturating caseworkers with claims tied directly to poverty. Through the use of poetry, video, and extensive legal research and writings, they will make their case.
