31. #TruthBeTold: The Destructiveness of Trump's Equity Gag Order & What Biden Must Do Now
In this episode, Kimberlé is joined by a panel of scholars and civil rights leaders to explore the impact of the Trump administration’s “Equity Gag Order,” and the president’s crusade against racial justice and gender equity. The conversation includes insights from leaders of the National Fair Housing Alliance and the NAACP Legal Defense Fund about how the Equity Gag Order’s list of “prohibited concepts” has impaired their work, as well as a discussion of the importance of narrative and storytelling and how the Trump administration has engaged in historical revisionism in their attacks on racial. As the panelists explore how we can fight back against the Equity Gag Order and how to pressure the Biden administration to rescind it on day one, they also place the order in historical context as part of a long tradition of state repression of civil rights movements.

Maintaining Your Marriage & Relationships When Adopting or Fostering
We don’t just bring kids into our homes; we bring them into our marriage and relationships. And marriages or relationships are particularly challenged when we are parenting kids who have been exposed to trauma. We talk with Amy Garber, MSW and LICSW, the Manager of the Post Adoption Program with Wide Horizons for Children, a child welfare organization. We also talk with Anne Meijers, a licensed clinical social worker, specializing in adult and couples therapy. *In this episode, we cover:* * Our goal should be for our marriage or relationships to be around long after the kids leave home. This takes being proactive because if we’re not careful our relationship becomes all about parenting or fostering. * How can kids enhance a marriage or relationship?  * We know that kids who’ve experience trauma can be challenging to parent and can test a marriage or a relationship. * Why are children adopted or fostered past infancy, children with prenatal exposure, and kids who have experienced trauma often harder to parent?  * CreatingaFamily.org has many courses on Trauma Informed Parenting. * What are some of the stresses that relationships may face when fostering or adopting kids who’ve been exposed to trauma?  * Feeling isolated * One parent wanting to adopt or foster more than the other  * Blame from the outside or between the parents * Grief- that parenting is harder or less fun than you anticipated, etc. * What are some situations that children who’ve experienced trauma can bring to the family and be particularly difficult for the marriage? * Disagreement on how to handle behaviors * Triangulation * What are some signs that you are neglecting your marriage? * How can trauma or neglect in the parent’s background impact the marriage once children arrive? * How to handle extended family members (grandparents, etc.) that are negatively impacting your relationship? * Tips for strengthening your relationship while parenting kids who’ve been exposed to trauma, including prenatal exposure. * Special issues for single parents. * We encourage single parents to establish a support network. How can challenging kids test this network? *  How can single parents find support? * Tips for singles to strengthen their support network and relationships.  This podcast is produced  by www.CreatingaFamily.org.
