Speak Up®

Voices for foster care reform


Speak Up® is a group of passionate volunteers advocating to improve foster care policy.

In many ways, Speak Up® is our policy arm made of regular citizens highlighting common sense solutions that can improve the foster care system.

The guiding principles of Speak Up®

  • The more we listen to children and youth in foster care, the better the system of care will be.
  • Children’s voices need to be amplified. We should provide a platform for more dialogue and action.

This is a grass-roots effort relying upon many people and focusing on a few concepts each year. In order to remain effective and on mission, we work with Speak Up volunteers to help them communicate as a group. We also ask those involved to spend time getting to know others who want to "speak up." We can all get involved in some way.
