New Report: Public Policy Fails Children With LGBT Parents

By | blog, LGBT

A new report was just issued by MAP (Movement Advancement Project) that illuminates how public policy fails two million American children.

For years, anti-LGBT activists have tried to silence any school curricula that make the educational system more welcoming to children being raised by LGBT parents or guardians. MAP’s outstanding compilation of data and analysis will be an extremely powerful tool to end that silence.

The harm caused to these families by discriminatory economic, legal, and school policies is un-American and in-excusable.

This report provides irrefutable evidence that there is much work to be done to end that harm and charts the path of what needs to change.



  • Idaho now has two PFLAG chapters- a long-time, skillfully run one in Idaho Falls and a newly re-dedicated group in Boise. The need to support parents and allies and bring them together with the GLBT community is powerful and creates hope. Events such as this bring the needed education. PFLAG can help with on-going support and we can all help as advocates. Thanks for a great article. How cool will it be to have one in every Idaho town until the day they are no longer needed!
