Sargent Shriver National Center on Poverty Law

Chicago, IL, United States

The Shriver Center on Poverty Law strives to build a future free of poverty, racism, and the interlocking systems that keep these injustices alive. Shriver’s Community and Family Justice program focuses on addressing the impact of the criminal justice and child welfare systems, two systems that perpetuate, deepen and criminalize poverty on families and communities. Their continued participation and advocacy on the Racial Disproportionality in Child Welfare Task Force is a vital step in addressing the overrepresentation of black children and youth at every critical decision point in the foster care system in Illinois.
