AbstractThe alleviation of poverty in Latin America has largely relied upon social protection programs in the form of conditional cash transfers. SDG 1 provides a space for such programs to be considered as part of the global sustainable development effort within its own Indicator 1.3.1 which measures social protection coverage. This paper uses that framework as a model to examine programs in Brazil, Mexico, Argentina, Chile, and Panama on the basis of poverty alleviation as defined by Indicator 1.3.1. By using the UNECLAC’s database of Non-Contributory Social Protection Programs in conjunction with the World Bank Atlas of Social Protection I narrowed down my focus to a change in percent coverage over time which is constructed using variables from the aforementioned databases. The ensuing results show gradual increases in coverage for Brazil’s Bolsa Familia, Mexico’s Oportunidades/Progresas, and Panama’s Red de Oportunidades accompanied by decreases in coverage for Argentina’s Jefas y Jefes and Chile’s Solidario. Although these results show a commitment to poverty alleviation as per SDG 1 the overall picture is mixed due to incomplete databases, limited range of disaggregated data, and the lack of consensus on a capability-based definition of poverty.

Black youth identity development: using the Black Lives Matter movement as a wake-up call for improved cultural attunement for non-black human service workersRodriguez, Tiana (2021-05)When considering youth development, it is essential to differentiate between non-Black youth and Black youth. Black youth may be struggling in other departments with family, addictions, homelessness, etc. but it is also essential to keep in mind that they are also Black which instantly puts targets on their back literally and figuratively due to institutionalized racism and the white supremacy so deeply rooted in our society. This is why using a human rights framework is significant to understanding and aiding Black youth development. Human service workers are historically human rights advocates, so this is a part of the work that they do.

Literature for liberation: the development and application of black children’s literatureVasta, Tessa America (2021-05)One of the greatest injustices being committed against minority people in the United States is a lack of representation in literature. The curriculum being used in the vast majority of schools lacks representation of anyone who is not white. The few times minorities are represented, it is stereotypical or racist. This lack of representation ultimately silences students and discourages them from engaging in school. Which then snowballs into greater problems later on, fewer opportunities, dropping out, school to prison pipeline. In order to lessen the achievement gap between white students and students of color, improvements must be made in the US education system.
