Impact Summit group

Come to our Town Hall on Friday October 5 and inform the creation of a national research agenda to end LGBTQ youth homelessness.

We want to know what data and evidence gaps you’ve identified that, if addressed, could strengthen efforts to eliminate lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, and questioning (LGBTQ) youth homelessness.

During this town hall, participants from around the country will come together to inform a national research agenda to end LGBTQ youth homelessness. Stakeholders from diverse backgrounds (e.g., youth, front line staff, researchers, policymakers) are invited to attend this interactive session. Participants will be asked to share their experience and ideas about important data and evidence gaps that, if addressed, could strengthen efforts to eliminate LGBTQ youth homelessness. This may include, for example, enhancements to data systems, information on program effectiveness, and research on understudied populations.

Over the coming year, with support from the Annie E. Casey Foundation, the True Colors Fund and the Silberman Center for Sexuality and Gender at Hunter College, along with a research team of LGBTQ youth will develop and release a national research agenda. Your input will be invaluable to developing this agenda. You are invited to come to the town hall with your best ideas!
