Advocacy

“You may never know what results come of your action, but if you do nothing there will be no result” - Mahatma Gandhi

Free Speech. Never has there been a more powerful tool of change in this country. We are ensured that we can let our voices be heard without being silenced. If there was ever a reason for us to let our voices be heard, youth homelessness is it.

The Forty to None Project is committed to advocating on behalf of gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender youth who are at risk of becoming or are homeless. We are equally committed to empowering everyone, including you, to join us in this effort.

In Washington, D.C., the Forty to None Project is working with a number of trusted and respected partners to ensure increased funding to help homeless youth, that there are protections in place for gay and transgender youth in federally funded agencies, and that the government supports efforts to facilitate greater family acceptance in the hope of preventing homelessness.

Please visit our Action Center to learn how you can contact your senators and congressperson in support of these efforts.

In addition, the Forty to None Project is working to raise the profile of youth homelessness and its impact on gay and transgender youth in the media on a national and local level. We encourage you to follow us on Facebook and Twitter, visit our Blog regularly, and sign up for regular updates from the Forty to None Project to see the results of these efforts as they happen.
