The Every Child Deserves a Family (ECDF) Act is a federal bill that would prohibit discrimination against children, youth, families, and individuals on the basis of religion, sex (including sexual orientation and gender identity), and marital status in the administration and provision of child welfare services receiving Federal funds. It would also improve safety, well-being, and permanency for LGBTQ children and youth in child welfare.

Sample Social Posts
There are over 123,000 children in #fostercare waiting to be adopted & less than 1/2 of them will be adopted in the next year. Turning away #LGBTQ, religious minority & single parents denies children loving homes. Congress must follow @repjohnlewis & @repJenniffer’s lead and pass the #ECDFAct!
10 states have laws that allow adoption agencies to discriminate against #LGBTQ parents. Over 30,000 children are waiting to be adopted in these states. Pass the #EveryChildDeservesAFamily Act to end discrimination!
2/3 of Americans oppose anti-#LGBTQ discrimination in taxpayer-funded #adoption services, including a majority of Republicans & evangelicals. It’s time to end it. Pass the #EveryChildDeservesaFamily Act.
