Build Congressional Support for the Every Child Deserves a Family Act

The Every Child Deserves a Family Act prohibits discrimination by federally funded foster care and adoption agencies against single and LGBTQ parents, so that more foster youth will find forever families. It also prohibits discrimination against and promotes supportive services to the 20% of foster youth who are LGBTQ. 

With one click here you can email your members of Congress – and then be patched through to call and tell them: “Please cosponsor the Every Child Deserves a Family Act.”
