Although 15 percent of American children are Black, they make up 32 percent of the 510,000 children in foster care; consistently have lower rates of adoption; and tend to stay in foster care nine months longer than white children. The Multiethnic Placement Act (MEPA) supports a “color blind” approach that prohibits agencies from the policy or practice of matching a child's race with that of his or her foster parent. “On-the-Line” with CWLA’s guests discuss MEPA and the grounds for amending the “color blind” component.
