Nyla Foster, a plaintiff in Lambda Legal's case against the state of Kansas is now being recognized for who she truly is. Trans people born in Kansas will now be able to correct the gender marker on their birth certificates and while it should have not taken a lawsuit to reach that conclusion, Nyla feels safer because of the judgment. The state finally recognizes her and respects her as a woman.

440K
There are over 440,000 children in foster care across the US. Each year 20,000 children age out of the system without a permanent family. Laws/policies in eight states allow taxpayer-funded, state-contracted foster and adoption agencies to turn away qualified families who do not meet an agency’s religious litmus test, denying foster children loving homes.
