(SOGIE = Sexual Orientation/Gender Identity and Expression)
This Implementation Guide provides information on how to collect SOGIE data through the "Asking About SOGIE (AAS)" Pilot developed and tested in Wayne, Oakland, and Macomb Counties in Michigan. The AAS Pilot was created by the Ruth Ellis Center and reflects the REC’s goals of creating affirming spaces for LGBTQ+ people while simultaneously advocating for all spaces to be affirming, welcoming, and safe for all people who identify as LGBTQ+. This Implementation Guide presents the lessons learned from implementing the AAS Pilot with youth in Michigan’s foster care system and provides recommendations for other agencies seeking to replicate the model for the children, youth, and families they support.
