Foster Youth Continue Advocacy to Have Their Voices Heard

May 21, 2021

The past two weeks have been very busy as our team works with the Senate to build awareness on the importance of a You Ombuds Office and a Youth Bill of Right.  We are proud to work side-by-side with current and former foster youth as they share their experiences, expertise, and recommendations for how to make the child welfare system more youth focused and honor the voices of youth. Below, download and read testimony provided by each of our partners over the last two weeks. We are proud to stand with them in raising our voices for foster youth!
