Using a Racial Equity Lens 2.0: Best Practices for Black & Brown LGBTQ Youth in Care

Wednesday, March 1, 2023
1:00 pm2:30 pm

Research shows that Black & Brown youth account for the largest percentage of LGBTQIA2S+ youth in foster care and juvenile justice. This overrepresentation can be largely attributed to patterns of racial bias and discrimination found at various levels in the child welfare system, including service delivery and policy implementation. To disrupt these patterns, child welfare providers need to use a racial equity lens, a set of questions we must ask ourselves throughout the decision-making process, to ensure we consider the perspectives and lived experiences of the diverse racial & ethnic communities we intend to serve. In this webinar, we will review emerging data, policy recommendations, and best and "next" practices to more effectively meet the needs of these underserved youth and families.
