Foster Advocates is a new organization that will center the perspectives, leadership, and voices of those who have lived experience in the foster cares system. This project will support the creation of an Advisory Council of former foster recipients to a) invest in participant’s leadership skills by providing training in policy/advocacy, root cause analysis, power mapping, and organizing and b) leverage the Advisory Council’s skills and expertise to decide the direction of their legislative goals and other related work.
