Victory for LGBTQ+ rights in Tingley v. Ferguson!

Our very own Raegen Rasnic served as counsel for the National Center for Lesbian Rights in representing Equal Rights Washington in this federal case. This week the Court granted the NCLR’s and the Attorney General’s motion to dismiss (supported by amicus from The Trevor Project). In doing so, the United States District Court for the Western District of Washington recognized that states can regulate licensed therapists to ensure that they do not subject LGBTQ minors to the deadly practice of conversion therapy.

Community Spotlight

Congratulations to Joel C. Odimba, Jr., who was recently nominated to serve a three-year term on the Family Law CASA Board. Family Law CASA is a non-profit organization that recruits, trains, and supervises volunteer court appointed special advocates (“CASAs”) for family law proceedings. CASAs gather critical information about a child’s circumstances for the court so a Judge or Commissioner can order services, interventions, and/or schedules tailored for the child’s safety and overall best interests. Family Law CASA gives children a voice in court, and is guided by an involved, dedicated, and passionate Board; all of whom are responsible for financial oversight, goal setting, policy development, and fundraising.
