PFLAG Detroit

PFLAG members:  We’d like to hear from those of you who are same-sex couples and interested in fostering or adopting children who are in the Michigan foster care system.

As you may know, St. Vincent Catholic Charities has sued the State, challenging the settlement of the ACLU’s lawsuit in which the State agreed to make all taxpayer-funded, state-contracted child placing agencies comply with its non-discrimination requirements and accept all qualified families, including same-sex couples.  St. Vincent claims it has a right to discriminate against same-sex couples while receiving your tax dollars to provide this government service.  This case could have a major impact on children in the foster care system, LGBTQ prospective foster and adoptive parents, and the government’s ability to enforce non-discrimination protections that our community depends on. We’re eager to hear from any PFLAG members who are same-sex couples interested in pursuing fostering or adopting through the state child welfare system, who could be affected by this case. Please contact Jay Kaplan, Staff Attorney for the LGBT Project of the ACLU of Michigan at kaplan@aclumich.org and 313-578-6812.
