REFLECTIONS ON BARRIERS TO JUSTICE

EPISODE 2

EPISODE 2 – Reflections on Barriers to Justice

MFG hosts a liberated and thought-provoking conversation with Ms. Maleeka Jihad aka “MJ”. During this Audio Nugget, MJ reveals what humanity means as she paints a picture of the parallels between domestic violence and our child protection system. This exchange uncovers a few of the drivers that fueled the recent article: “Structures of Oppression in the U.S. Child Protection System: Reflections on Administrative Barriers to Equity (https://www.researchgate.net/publication/358592070_Structures_of_Oppression_in_the_US_Child_Welfare_System_Reflections_on_Administrative_Barriers_to_Equity).”

MJ leaves you with this to consider:
1) How are you causing harm and what are you willing to sacrifice?
2) Are you supporting or policing Black communities?

—————————–

About MJ:
MJ (Maleeka Jihad) is the Director of the MJ Consulting Firm and the nonprofit MJCF: Coalition, an Agency focused on dismantling systemic racism in the family regulation (child welfare) system through education, advocacy, and policy reform. She is the CEO and Co-creator of EC3 (Emic Cultural Consultants Collective), where she specializes in organizational and individual transformational work with structural racism and healing. 

As an adjunct faculty member at the Graduate School of Social Work with the University of Denver, she teaches race, privilege, social justice, therapy, supervision, and child and family law courses. Alongside her students, MJ is continuing her education by obtaining a  PhD in Organizational Development and Change specializing in Social Justice (at Fielding Graduate School) with a foundation of International Psychology courses from the Chicago School of Professional Psychology.
