  • Virtual Lobby Day: Every Child Deserves a Family Act

    This event is hosted by American Atheists and the American Humanist Association.

    ### **Register for AHA & American Atheists' 2022 Virtual Lobby Day**

    Lobby Day is an opportunity for members of our community to speak directly with their elected officials and staff in Washington to advocate for the issues we care about in a friendly and empowering environment.

    This year, we are asking participants to contribute $15 to help offset the costs of scaling the event. Register at: https://americanhumanist.org/lobbyday2022/

    ABOUT THE BILL
    The John Lewis Every Child Deserves a Family Act (“Every Child”) would prohibit federally-funded child welfare service providers from discriminating against children, families, and individuals because of their religion, sex (including sexual orientation, gender identity, and intersex traits), and marital status. It also ensures that children and youth in foster care receive the identity-affirming, culturally competent care they deserve. 

    In other words, the Every Child Act ensures that no taxpayer-funded foster care or adoption agency can turn away qualified prospective parents or mistreat children in foster care because of who they are, who they love, or what they believe. 

    PROCESS
    When you register for the event, the organizers will schedule you for a meeting with you representatives for June 22. This meeting will be online.
