The Indian Child Welfare Act (ICWA) is largely supported by those who interact with it: child welfare experts, state welfare agencies, and tribal nations. It’s been called the gold standard of child welfare policy. So why is it facing a full-throated legal challenge that will be heard by the Supreme Court this fall? Our panelists will explain why ICWA is an effective and important piece of legislation and illuminate how the questions addressed in the ICWA challenge make it an attractive target for opponents who want to use it as a back door to undermine tribal sovereignty.
The program is presented in partnership with the National Indian Child Welfare Association.
