The passage of “The Young Adult Voluntary Services and Support Act” – LB 216 – was a huge victory this year for young people who age out of foster care, as well as child welfare advocates and supporters.
This Thursday, you’re invited to join Appleseed and other child welfare advocates at Urban Abbey to learn about this wonderful success story for young people in Nebraska’s foster care system.
Child Welfare Advocacy: A Story of Success
Thursday, July 18, 6:30 p.m.
Urban Abbey, 1026 Jackson Street, Omaha, NE
Enjoy Urban Abbey’s delicious coffee drinks and see a presentation on how young people and advocates joined forces on a years-long effort that culminated in the passage of the Young Adult Services and Support Act.
The presentation will include a short video followed by a panel discussion and Q&A featuring stakeholders and young people involved in advocacy efforts.
We hope you join us Thursday night to celebrate this wonderful success!
