Supporting LGBTQ+ Youth to Thrive: A Conversation with Field Leaders about LGBTQ+ Youth Wellness

Grantmakers for Thriving Youth

Virtual

Across the country, policies are becoming increasingly hostile to the LGBTQ+ community. Young people are deeply impacted by policies and practices designed to stigmatize and isolate them. Our panelists will discuss how LGBTQ+ youth are impacted by these policies and practices, offer general indicators of wellness among LGBTQ+ youth, including belonging, inclusivity, identity, and physical and emotional safety, and share practices that allow the young people in their communities to thrive. We’ll discuss:
-Strategies to support LGBTQ+ youth inclusivity;
-How organizations are supporting LGBTQ+ safety amidst increasing attacks on their physical and emotional safety; and
-how funders can center the inclusivity, belonging, and safety of LGBTQ+ youth.

Speakers:
-Antonia Caba, MPH; PhD candidate in Human Development and Family Sciences, University of Connecticut
-Maryse Pierce, Program Manager, Stonewall Community Foundation
-Alex Roque, President and Executive Director, the Ali Forney Center
-Moderator: Ayeola Kinlaw, Facilitator, Grantmakers for Thriving Youth
