Report: Nearly All Fifty States are Failing Transgender, Gender-Expansive and Gender-Nonconforming (TGNC) Youth

Children’s Rights has proudly teamed up with Lambda Legal and the Center for the Study of Social Policy in conducting a groundbreaking study highlighting the deficiencies in law and policy across all 50 states in protecting transgender, gender expansive, and gender non-conforming youth in out-of-home care systems. The first-of-its-kind report showcases the dramatic overrepresentation of LGBTQ and TNGC youth in the nation’s out-of-home care system versus the general population, while also reporting on the harsh treatment and discrimination this population experiences within the out-of-home care system.
