HRC Foundation and Clark University are conducting a survey of LGBTQ people to explore the impact of potential discrimination in the foster care and adoption systems in the U.S. The study will help advocates understand the barriers faced by prospective LGBTQ adoptive and foster parents -- including laws that sanction discrimination against qualified LGBTQ people seeking to provide homes to children in need. The survey will also examine how the lack of nationwide non-discrimination protections for LGBTQ people affects prospective adoptive and foster parents.
All LGBTQ people over the age of 18 are invited to participate in the survey here.
