Stakeholder Implementation Advisory Committee Meeting
Are you coming to the Continuum of Care Reform, Stakeholder Implementation
Advisory Committee Meeting, on March 25, 2020 from 10AM to 3PM at the
California Department of Social Services (CDSS), 744 P Street, Sacramento,
CA? This quarter’s theme is Serving Youth with Diverse SOGIE (Sexual
Orientation, Gender Identity and Expression): Today and in the Years to Come.
California Youth Connection (CYC), a leader in system change for the past 30
years, has advocated for many policy and legislative victories that
ultimately ensures that California’s child welfare system is safe and
inclusive for ALL. Honoring each young person's Sexual Orientation and Gender
Identity Expression (SOGIE) is vital practice that has yet to integrate fully
into the culture and practice of the system.
Vanessa Hernandez is the CYC Deputy Director of Advocacy and Impact.
Christina Parker is the CYC Statewide Policy Coordinator.
CYC has played a vital role in the CCR SOGIE workgroup over the years, which
has been integral in the recent changes in legislation and policy.
You won’t want to miss hearing directly from a panel of CYC leaders: Star,
Galilea and Esther! They will share their personal experiences and
recommendations to CCR implementers on how to create safe and inclusive
spaces for our LGBTQIA+ siblings in care and how to honor all gender
identities and expressions of children and youth impacted by foster care.
In person attendance is highly recommended! You will walk away with a wealth
of information and resources to assist you in serving your SOGIE youth.
Seating is limited, so reserve your space today by emailing CCR@xxxxxxxxxx.

Stay tuned to learn about Marcela Ruiz, CDSS Director of the Office of Equity
in the next Meeting Spotlight!
