About The Event
Join expert speakers Linda Diaz, Esq. (Lawyers for Children) and Ray Kimmelman, Esq. (NYC Administration for Children’s Services) as they discuss the current legal and social framework for New York City’s LGBTQ youth population in the foster care system. How is the experience of being in foster care unique, and often more challenging, for this population?
This conversation will review policies and practices that provide supportive and affirming care to LGBTQ youth in foster care. It will also identify strategies to challenge and address LGBTQ discrimination that LGBTQ youth continue to encounter.
