Thank you to everyone who joined us on April 8th, 2022 to celebrate the passage of the Indian Family Protection Act and to pay recognition for the hard work of partners, impacted families, collaborators, contributors and tribal leaders.
The work, prayers, intention, fight and love that was poured into this will not be forgotten. We are so grateful for everyone involved in the passing of HB-135 The Indian Family Protection Act, drafted by our communities and for our communities. IFPA will protect our most sacred and precious beings, our children!
The Indian Family Protection Act (IFPA) solidifies and expands protections for Native children and families in child welfare systems. IFPA uplifts tribal sovereignty and tribal self-determination, by ensuring tribal communities are first in deciding how to care for their children in need, reducing risks of them being taken away from their communities.
