How Legal and Social Inequalities Hurt LGBT Families
More than 2 million children in the United States have, to varying degrees, become collateral damage after decades of ideology, laws, and policies that hurt lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender, or LGBT, people and families. To shine a light on this issue, LGBT, allied, and child welfare-focused organizations are, for the first time, releasing a comprehensive report that profiles and documents the experiences of the 2 million children with LGBT parents, the many ways that state and federal laws hurt and exclude them, and the common-sense policy solutions that can make things better.
Please join the Center for American Progress and Maryland Attorney General Doug Gansler to discuss a new report, "All Children Matter: How Legal and Social Inequalities Hurt LGBT Families." "All Children Matter" was released by the Center for American Progress, the Family Equality Council, and the Movement Advancement Project, in partnership with COLAGE, The Evan B. Donaldson Adoption Institute, and the National Association of Social Workers (with a foreword by the Child Welfare League of America).
October 25, 2011, 10:00am - 12:00pm
Admission is free.
