D.C. Trip To Make A Change
Organized by: Raven Sherrett
I am headed to Washington D.C. next month and am wanting to bring back some souvenirs. Why am I going to D.C.? I am a part of a non profit organization called OFYC (Oregon Foster Youth Connection) where youth come together and talk about the problems in the care system and we put effort into trying to change those problems. Instead of speaking State wide this time, we will be on a federal level about the foster care system. Our voice matters! No one knows what it is like in the care system unless you've been there yourself. So it's a huge movement with the youth. Due to trying to get an apartment, school starting, working... I am unable to spend money at the moment so I can move out. I would really like some help with some cash to take with me. It would be greatly appreciated. And remember, I am doing this for all the kids in the foster care system. I want a change, we need a change. Not to mention we (youth) have have the power to change.
