Youth Advocacy Day is on January 28th, 2022!

Join more than 300 youth advocates and adult supporters as we raise a unified voice in support of Mockingbird's 2022 legislative agenda. Although we are unable to be together in person, we will still gather virtually to advocate for change. Youth and young adults with lived experience of homelessness and/or foster care, and adult allies are encouraged to attend. If you are a young person who has experienced foster care and/or homelessness, or a community partner who wants to join the legislative meetings, please fill out this form to make your voice heard!

Register to attend our morning program to receive the full schedule and connection details. We hope you can join us on January 28th, 2022!

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.
