Take Action


Every Child Deserves a Family.  


Over 120,000 at-risk foster youth nationwide await a permanent family. One in five identifies as LGBTQ, and they fare markedly worse than their non-LGBTQ peers.  


Right now 10 states – home to 30,000 children awaiting adoption – sanction discrimination against foster youth and prospective adoptive parents on the basis of religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, and marital status.


At any time that's wrong. During a crisis, that's unconscionable.


The Every Child Deserves a Family Act, reintroduced on June 5th, will put an end to that.
