Supporting Transgender and Gender Expansive Foster Youth


The Williams Institute of the UCLA School of Law estimates that 150,000 youth in the United States identify as transgender. Therefore, if you work with youth, you most likely work with an individual who is transgender or exploring their gender identity.
This is a critical time to come together and support trans and gender expansive youth.
Come hear a panel of former foster youth, service providers and researchers address the following questions:
What do we know about the experiences of transgender and gender expansive (TGE) youth in the foster care system?
Why is it important for child welfare workers to understand the needs of TGE youth?
How can child welfare workers better support TGE youth in developing a positive gender identity?
How can child welfare workers better support TGE youth navigate different systems and institutions?
A list of speakers will be posted shortly.

*This first floor auditorium is wheelchair accessible.

RSVP at:

* If you know or are a former foster youth who is transgender or gender expansive, non-conforming or variant, we still have room for one more panelists. Please get in touch! There is a stipend and travel reimburesments.
