PFLAG’s VP Weighs in on Adoption and Foster Care Bill

Yesterday, Family Equality Council and PFLAG hosted a briefing on the Every Child Deserves a Family Act at the Capitol. Many children are denied permanent homes and loving family members because of discriminatory bans in some states. This bill would open more loving, permanent homes for many children in foster care by restricting federal funding to states that do not allow people to foster and adopt because of their sexual orientation, gender identity, or marital status.

PFLAG’s vice president, Mike Neubecker, wrote an op-ed on this important issue, and we’re happy to share his article with you! Click here to read Mike Neubecker’s article on The Huffington Post.
