The Andrus Family Fund cordially invites you to attend our quarterly learning sessions geared at elevating the voices of organizations and the issues that we care about. AFF's learning sessions are an opportunity to highlight the work of our grantees and other leaders in the field, as well as a chance to help convene funders and practitioners to continue learning. We seek to create a learning community that can help advance effective practices in service of all young people.
Register now for our next session Tuesday, September 18, 2018 from 2:30pm-4:00pm ET via Zoom to hear how LGBTQ youth are fairing in the juvenile justice and foster care system. AFF grantee/funder partners and colleagues will take a closer look at the unique obstacles LGBTQ face in the juvenile justice and foster care systems. Youth and their adult allies will share organizing and advocacy efforts led by and for queer trans youth in Alabama and New Orleans.
Panelists will discuss the barriers to health, housing, education, and re-entry services they face as immigrant, low-income, queer and trans youth, and highlight federal policies and litigation trends that will promote equitable social services and protections from harm. Speakers will provide recommendations for how local, state, and federal partners can better support youth through programmatic and federal policies, and how funders can fill the gaps aimed at better supporting these communities.
*Once registered, if you no longer can attend the learning session please notify, Program Associate, Jennifer Kaizer at email@example.com.
