In this Episode of Obscene, I spoke with Julia Davis, Director of Youth Justice and Child Welfare for Children’s defense fund in New York. She helped me break down what’s in the American Rescue Act, whom it helps, and who it leaves out. We also examine what policies could truly protect and aid children and their families, not just to recover, but to flourish.
Julia Davis joined New York’s Children’s Defense Fund in 2018 as the Director of Youth Justice and Child Welfare. In her role, she works in partnership with young people, defenders, service providers, and other advocates to advance policies that support children and youth who may have contact with the child welfare or criminal legal system. She has spent two decades working on behalf of young people through civil rights litigation, public policy, research, and public engagement campaigns. Prior to coming to CDF, she was a senior attorney at Children’s Rights, leading reform litigation for system-involved youth across the country.
