U.S. representative Pete Stark of California's
13th congressional district will hold a panel discussion focused on the reintroduction of the Every Child Deserves a Family Act this Thursday. The legislation would open more homes to foster children by working to end discrimination against prospective foster and adoptive parents based on their marital status or sexual orientation.
Those sitting on the panel will range from foster children to adoptive parents who are said to have experienced discrimination. LGBT and foster care experts are also scheduled to attend, as well as an American Civil Liberties Union attorney.
