On October 11th, 2015 the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors passed a motion to hire a consultant to assess all county departments with regard to their work with lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning (LGBTQ) youth. On March 28, 2017, Khush Cooper & Associates, in collaboration with the Williams Institute at UCLA, submitted our report on the Los Angeles County LGBTQ Youth Preparedness Scan to the Office of Child Protection. The report is available by clicking here.
You are cordially invited to attend a Stakeholder Convening where we will discuss implications contained in the report and begin a community conversation about how we can work together to prevent LGBTQ youth from becoming disproportionately represented in the Los Angeles child welfare system and experiencing disparities.
This event will be held at the Center at Cathedral Plaza on June 16th, 2017 from 8:30 am to 12:00 pm.
