We had out inaugural meeting on December 13th in Vacouver, WA. Our broad vision for the committee’s work is to ensure LGBTQ youth have the same outcomes as other kids in foster care; That kids know that all CASAs are safe and affirming; CASA volunteers hold the system accountable for LGBTQ youth; and that questions of gender identity are asked in a normative way. The committee also recommended the a training on pronoun usage be offered at the Spring PMMM.
Current members include:
Amber Hasler, Garret Harrison, Heather Redman, Jeff Gwinn, Nina Taylor, Wendy Mayo
