Virtual Congressional Convening

Current and former foster youth, child welfare advocates, and NFYI supporters are invited to participate in day two of our 2022 Virtual Congressional Convening on Tuesday, September 20th. We will be joined by Members of Congress for group discussions on the importance of access to healthcare and mental health services and we’ll be leading critical conversations around juvenile justice. This is also the final event for NFYI’s inaugural Congressional Leadership Academy class.
