This is why I do long threads on racism in child & education spaces (child education up to #MedEd) and on the role of women to “protect” only some kids, not others. There is focus on police without looking at the full picture of sources of harm to children of color.
It is very very easy to focus on the Boston police Union leader

but who is it that..

helps him get access to children?
stays silent?
silences abused children?
promotes him?
seeks to please him (be promoted by him)?
sees him as a “good leader”?
softens his image?
protects him?
The role of men & women who police/silence those who would speak up... who prevent identifying the abuser

=extremely important

it is all on one spectrum: if you experience being denied food by a teacher as a 3-year old, will you speak up on abuse...

vs Stockholm Syndrome?

NEW: #Indiana considering whether to legalize 14.4 ppb #lead in drinking water for #infants and #toddlers with House Bill 1045.

Bill here: iga.in.gov/legislative/20…

My perspective provided below. There's still time to fix a bad bill and protect Indiana's children.
1/
2/ The current bill requires #preschool and #childcare facilities to conduct drinking water testing for lead. If lead "equals or exceeds 15 parts per billion" (ppb), they must reduce the lead levels.

Testing = Good

15 ppb lead = Bad
3/ What do the experts say?
Well, the @AmerAcadPeds (doctors dedicated to the health, safety and well-being of infants, children, adolescents and young adults says lead no greater than 1 ppb. (These are doctors who know #children's health)

THREAD: Yesterday, a federal judge ruled that the US gov is legally responsible for the #MentalHealth trauma that Trump’s #FamilySeparation policy inflicted on thousands of migrant families at the US/Mexico border. nytimes.com/2019/11/06/us/… (1/9)
This groundbreaking ruling recognizes that the Trump Admin knowingly put families in danger & is obligated to provide a solution. #MentalHealth svcs are a step on the path to healing for kids & parents who were torn apart simply for seeking safety. #FamiliesBelongTogether (2/9)
It’s also critical that we don’t forget the millions of children--the vast majority of whom are US citizens--who are increasingly vulnerable to or have already been separated from their parents due to ICE enforcement in our own communities. #FamiliesBelongTogether #NoRaids (3/9)
