Recent debates about how to best reform the state's child welfare system have put the backlog of children awaiting foster care placement in the spotlight. As we learned earlier this month, too many children are having to sleep in Child Protective Services offices because there is a critical shortage of foster families across the state. Despite this, many agencies that recruit and license foster parents have little desire to work with gays and lesbians who are interested in opening their homes to children who are in state custody. And legislative proposals that aim to give faith-based groups a "religious liberty" protection in their work with vulnerable children will just make things worse.
The center comes two years after an education journal printed a controversial comment by Rice's head football coach, Ken Hatfield. In a edition of the Chronicle of Higher Education , Hatfield denounced homosexuality, sparking a campus debate and resulting in the creation of several gay and lesbian organizations. College campuses have become increasingly aware of the need for support groups and resources for their gay and lesbian students since the beating death of Matthew Shepard. Shepard, a gay University of Wyoming student, was targeted by two men in a bar after he told them he was gay. Statistics show that schools and colleges are the third most common place for hate crimes to occur, according to Nicholas Sakurai , director of the Student Empowerment Project at the United States Student Association Foundation.
