HHS has also stopped a rule about collecting information about LGBT people in the foster care system. They will no longer be collecting data on either trans and gay youth in foster care, or on foster parents. Youth advocates are up in arms because we can’t know how best to serve trans and gay youth if we don’t know where and how many they are.

Just one more egregious attack for your long and very sad list.
