Foster Youth in Action: LGBTQIA & Non-Binary Youth-Led Action in Child Welfare
September 6, 2017 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
As part of FYA’s Webinar Series, we are hosting an online discussion with youth organizers, policy experts, and community advocates who are organizing LGBTQIA & Non-Binary youth-led action and resistance in Child Welfare Systems. We will learn about what’s happening on a national level and across the country. We will also hear from local presenters who will share their strategies and campaigns for taking local and state action. There will also be time to raise up important work in your states, share insights, and ask questions.
