VIDEO: Allies for Adoption launches to help foster kids, gay and trans parents


Family Equality Council has launched the collaborative Allies for Adoption campaign in honor of children in foster care, parents who are LGBT, and National Adoption Month.

In most states in the US, it is illegal for LGBT people and couples to adopt children, while 400,000 kids remain in the country’s foster care system. To challenge the foster care crisis and advocate for LGBT parents, the national organization Family Equality Council is working with major child welfare and social justice groups on a campaign that furthers their mission of supporting, representing, and connecting parents with their parents to create millions of families. Allies for Adoption is taking a multifaceted approach to rendering equality for LGBT families that combines advocacy, awareness, and education.
