At this youth-led and youth-planned rally, young foster care leaders will share the results of a recent national survey of foster youth conducted this summer by Foster Youth in Action’s youth organizing body, Leaders United. To see results of this survey, go here

The rally concludes this year’s Leaders for Change conference, which brings together young leaders to participate in organizing workshops, presenting their state-led advocacy efforts through the Showcase of Foster Youth Action, and elevating their grassroots priorities on a national level.
