We’re back! This week we share new research on how CPS assistance expands surveillance of marginalized families, and share a post from The Conversation on the limits of empathy for bridging political divides.
“How CPS Assistance Expands Surveillance of Marginalized Families” by Mahala Miller. New research shows that CPS resources prompt administrators to report families, even if they don’t believe abuse has occurred, expanding surveillance into the homes of many poor and/or families of color.
“Bridging America’s Divides Requires a Willingness to Work Together Without Becoming Friends First” by Francesca Polleta. We repost this piece from The Conversation that considers how a willingness to tolerate and cooperate with others is more important than empathy for working together amid political disagreement and crisis.
