Fight for Our Girls: Introduction Tashira Halyard Through this series, Fight for Our Girls, the Center for the Study of Social Policy’s Alliance for Racial Equity in Child Welfare seeks to radically shift the narrative surrounding girls of color and status offenses from a focus on delinquency and misbehavior to structural discrimination, trauma and youth well-being. This is an introduction to a series of briefs that will promote programs, policies and initiatives aimed at developing a trauma-informed approach to addressing status offenses and supporting the ability of girls of color to thrive.  
Findings from the RISE Youth Qualitative Interviews This brief describes findings from interviews with nine youth who are participating in RISE. The RISE Initiative aims to reduce the number of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, or questioning (LGBTQ) youth in long-term foster care, and improve permanency by decreasing heterosexism and transphobia in caregiving settings. As part of the PII approach, a formative evaluation is being conducted to assess achievement of short- term outcomes: decreased heterosexism and transphobia. The formative evaluation is also monitoring initial implementation of the RISE interventions. Interviewed youth were asked to provide details on their perceptions of RISE, foster care services, and changes in their lives during receipt of services.

We identify how the pandemic is amplifying some of the risks for LGBTQ+ youth in child welfare systems and propose practices to mitigate them. Now, more than ever, LGBTQ+ young people must be protected. The report highlights how the discrimination, institutionalization, and abuse that LGBTQ+ youth already face are exacerbated by COVID-19:   June 2020
