The Cliffs of Insanity

A young man in the Kansas City area, who has severe autism, is days from turning 21. And when he does, he could end up homeless because he wasn't born in the U.S.
“... I think it’s unethical and immoral that that is being allowed to happen.”
I have a situation in Kansas that is too similar. She's close to aging out and case manager didn't start working with an immigration attorney until last year. Placement instability has delayed those efforts. It's cruel.

-cries about getting deported.
Bro you deported Jews to their death. You're deported to retirement.
"I cannot believe it. I cannot understand how this can happen in a country like this. You’re forcing me out of my home"
While my employer works on formal DEI initiatives, we can prime the environment. I'm salty over office supply budgets and a fucking Sharpie so I know little things can set the tone. That's why we start with little things that say "hey, I see you".
Not me ordering $86 of stickers on Etsy to give to foster kids who are out (and a safe space sign for a home to display). There's a kickass home worker who has 4, soon to be 5 LGBTQ+ kids placed (out of 21). So excited to show some tweens and teens love.
LGBTQ+ kids are more likely to be in foster care and face poorer outcomes. We have seen horrible instability especially amongst trans youth because people in my profession haven't affirmed their identities, ensured safe educated placement and protected them from discrimination
🧵1.Real talk: do not tweet or DM me images of racism, homophobia, violence against anyone, slurs, any of it. Even with a content warning and then jumping to descriptions or having images included is triggering.
This is a line I apparently need to set today.
Please, just don't.
Thank you to everyone for your support. We're shaken up, but okay. The robbery occurred overnight or early this morning, so none of us were on-site when it happened. We greatly appreciate your kind words. Again, please let us & LKPD know if you have any info.
