What Should be in a Bill of Rights for North Carolina Foster Youth?

SaySo, with support of the NC Division of Social Services, is drafting a Foster Youth Bill of Rights and also a Sibling Bill of Rights. Ultimately, SaySo would like to have these documents endorsed by the NC General Assembly. This summer, Titianna Goings, NCDSS Summer Intern and former SaySo Board member, combined relevant bills of rights from other states to create a draft being reviewed by the current SaySo Board of Directors.

What do you think should be in either a "Foster Youth Bill of Rights" or a "Sibling Bill of Rights?"

Let us know by Thanksgiving (Nov. 22, 2012)

The SaySo Board will have a document to present to the NC Division of Social Services in December 2012; we hope to have it endorsed during the next legislative session. Email your suggestions to [email protected] or go to www.saysoinc.org and click our "Bill of Rights" page.
