Opening remarks will be provided by Representative Danny K. Davis, and Representative Angie Craig, original authors of the legislation.

Panelists include:

  • Frank Utomo, Former foster youth and NFYI member
  • Weston Charles-Gallo, Former foster youth
  • Jenny Pizer, Lambda Legal
  • Mark Daley, Parent
  • Stacey Stevenson, Parent & Family Equality

This event will be hosted by NFYI board member Nii-Quartelai Quartey, a nationally respected social impact advocate who was recently awarded the 2021 Black LGBTQ+ Champion Recognition Award from Urban League of the Greater San Francisco Bay Area.
