YLC’s Policy Director Awarded ABA’s Fearless Children’s Lawyer of the Month

We are so proud of YLC’s Policy Director, Jenny Pokempner, on being named the American Bar Association’s Fearless Children’s Lawyer of the Month! “For over two decades, Jenny has been a relentless advocate dedicated to building better futures for teenagers and young adults in foster care. For Jenny, the vision is clear: Decision and policy makers must see the potential of each young adult, treat them with care, respond to them while understanding child and adolescent development, invest in opportunities for them, and above all, seek to ensure they are connected with families and caring adults who can provide what systems cannot.”
