Election Night for Youth and Families; Five Scenes from Brackeen v. Haaland
Youth-related funding and policy was on the ballot in several states last week, and Olivia Allen of the Children’s Funding Project joins to help us break down what happened with those measures.
Then, we break down five different exchanges that capture the essence of the Supreme Court’s three hour oral arguments over the Indian Child Welfare Act last Wednesday, and share some thoughts on what seemed to be on the mind of the likely “swing votes” in the case.
Olivia Allen is the strategy director of the D.C.-based Children’s Funding Project. She joined us to discuss the details and outcomes for six funding measures on the ballot in various states and counties this year, and talk about the push for more states to enable local children’s funding mechanisms.
