For the first time ever, the All Children Matter report gives a voice to the more than 2 million children in the United States who have, to varying degrees, become collateral damage after decades of ideology, laws, and policies that hurt lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) people and families. To shine a light on this issue, LGBT, allied, and child welfare-focused organizations released a comprehensive report that profiles and documents the experiences of children with LGBT parents, the many ways that state and federal laws hurt and exclude them, and the common-sense solutions that can make things better.

The Movement Advancement Project (MAP), an independent think tank that provides rigorous research, insight, and analysis that help speed equality for LGBT people, created the report with a coalition of LGBT leaders, policy experts, and child advocates that includes the Family Equality Council, the Center for American Progress, the National Association of Social Workers, the Evan B. Donaldson Adoption Institute, and COLAGE —with a foreword by the Child Welfare League of America.
