Reading Time: 9 Minutes

Introduction

Inspired in part by one of their monthly conference calls in early June following the killing of George Floyd in the U.S – and which included a presentation from Ross Brockway about his work at the Georgia Justice Project – the Project for Integrating Spirituality, Law, And Politics (PISLAP) submitted a proposal to the Democratic Party Platform Committee for the 2020 Democratic Convention, on the subject of reform of Child Support Law toward a co-parenting, family-building model. We reproduce the 2020 Platform Proposal here in the hope that it will inspire hope and resolve that positive action, and real transformation, can result from our ideals, conversations, and gatherings. This initiative echoed earlier efforts when PISLAP made a policy proposal to the same Platform Committee in 2016 following our Drexel Conference in Philadelphia. That proposal focused on Restorative Justice and called for the creation of a Truth and Reconciliation Commission to address the legacy and harms of slavery in the U.S. The 2016 proposal on Restorative Justice was partly adopted.
