They will lead efforts to advance our legislative and public policy agenda at the state and federal level, focusing primarily on relationship and family recognition, family formation and expansion (adoption, assisted reproduction, and surrogacy), and parentage. This includes legislative and administrative advocacy, grassroots calls to actions, and creation of written resources and materials to inform our families of their rights related to the various paths to parenthood and family formation. The Director of LGBTQ+ Family Law & Policy also will lead our work on amicus curiae briefs in key LGBTQ+ family law and family recognition cases, including identifying opportunities to file or join briefs related to LGBTQ+ family law, family formation, adoption, and/or parentage.

For over 26 summers, LGBTQ+ parents, their children, extended families, and their friends have gathered at the tip of iconic Cape Cod to create connections that truly last a lifetime, taking home experiences that help us further join together to make the world a better place for all loving families.
