Who supports ICWA?

There is broad, bipartisan support against this misguided attack on a law that is crucial for protecting the wellbeing of Indian children and Indian sovereignty. InĀ Haaland v. Brackeen, dozens of state attorneys general, hundreds of tribes and tribal organizations, and leading child welfare organizations filed briefs with the Supreme Court in support of upholding the law. ICWA has also been defended in court by both Democratic and Republican administrations and has strong, consistent bipartisan support from leading members of Congress.

A number of key briefs filed with the U.S. Supreme Court in support of ICWA are included on our resources page. A full list of amicus briefs in support of the law can also be found at Turtle Talk.
