California Senate Bill 731, Mark Leno @MarkLeno & National Center for Lesbian Rights @NCLRights (USA)

California Senate Bill 731 would require children in foster care to be placed in out-of-home placements according to their gender identity, regardless of the gender or sex listed in their court or child welfare records. “Out-of-home placements” include  placement with relatives, nonrelated extended family members, tribal members, and foster family homes, certified homes of foster family agencies, intensive treatment or multidimensional treatment foster care homes, group care placements, such as group homes and community treatment facilities, and residential treatment pursuant to Section 7950 of the Family Code.

The anti-lesbian National Center for Lesbian Rights supports this bill, which apparently affords no consideration to the girls housed in “foster family homes, certified homes of foster family agencies, intensive treatment or multidimensional treatment foster care homes, group care placements, such as group homes and community treatment facilities, and residential treatment pursuant to Section 7950 of the Family Code” with Boys who identifies as Girls.
