"The Christian Alliance for Indian Child Welfare is committed to seek God's guidance in defending the rights of the poor and needy, as instructed in Proverbs 31:8-9."
Harmful federal Indian policy affects children and families across the USA.
In the words of Dr. William Allen, former Chair, US Comm. On Civil Rights (1989) & Emeritus Professor, Political Science MSU;
“... we are talking about our brothers and our sisters. We’re talking about what happens to people who share with us an extremely important identity. And that identity is the identity of free citizens in a Republic…" (Re: The Indian Child Welfare Act, September 20, 2008, Wahkon, MN)
Read letters from birth parents, grandparents, foster families, pre-adoptive families concerning their multi-racial children who have been hurt by the misapplication of the Indian Child Welfare Act (ICWA).
Though proponents of the ICWA argue that the act has safeguards to prevent misuse, scores of multi-racial children have been negatively affected by its application.
As unbelievable as it might seem, children that had never been near a reservation nor involved in tribal customs have been removed from homes they love and placed with strangers chosen by Social Services. Sometimes the homes they are placed in would have been deemed unsafe for children of other heritages.
CAICW is the only National org advocating for these families. Our advocacy is both Judicial & Legislative, as well as a prayer resource & shoulder to cry on.
