WHAT IS LC4T?
LC4T is a project of the California Tribal Families Coalition. In 2017, at the request of former California Attorney General Kamala Harris, tribes completed the ICWA Compliance Task Force Report, which includes 20 recommendations to increase Indian Child Welfare Act compliance across the state. The number one recommendation of the Task Force Report is to fix the glaring inequity that in Indian Child Welfare cases all parties have publicly funded legal representation, except Tribes. LC4T is the solution to that inequity. LC4T will, through accessing federal and state funds available to others, provide an attorney, at no cost to the Tribe, for state court ICWA cases. As the LC4T project scales up across California, a highly trained attorney will be there, side-by-side with tribes in court, for Every Tribe, Every Child, Every Case.
