In coordination with the Congressional Equality Caucus, National Foster Youth Institute and Family Equality are hosting a Congressional Issue Briefing on the John Lewis Every Child Deserves a Family Act.
Opening remarks will be provided by Representative Danny K. Davis, and Representative Angie Craig, original authors of the legislation. This event will include a remarkable set of panelists representing a range of experience and service to ensure the child welfare system is indiscriminate with its support for the nation’s foster youth. 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.
