2021 Speaker Series: It Takes All of Us

Thank you for joining us for our 2021 Speaker Series! Watch the episodes to learn how you can join the work to transform foster care and end youth homelessness - because this work takes all of us.

Watch the Series

The Mockingbird Society’s mission is to transform foster care and end youth homelessness.

Working in partnership with young people who’ve lived through the systems we’re transforming, we change policies, perceptions, and practices that stand in between any young person and a safe, supportive, stable home.

Youth Leadership Summit  

Our second-ever virtual youth leadership Summit was a success! Young advocates from across the state came together to present their recommendations to the Office of Homeless Youth and the Supreme Court Commissions on Children in Foster Care. Topics raised by Mockingbird’s young people included Safe and Affirming Placements for LGBTQ+ Youth, Expunging Criminal Records and Increasing Access to Financial Literacy Skills. We’ll be sure to keep you updated on the progress of these important issues. If you weren’t able to join us, you can watch the full video below! Chapter presentations begin at 15:56.
