Bakersfield residents marched and protested against Child Protective Services in Kern County Friday.

Protestors claimed there was corruption in the agency that needs to be brought to light.

The protest took place at the Liberty Bell at the Downtown Bakersfield courthouse.

Organizers said they want to raise awareness to ongoing corruption, including “Kids for Cash”, a program where a foster family takes a child from CPS in exchange for federal title funding.
