CYPT updates

We are pleased to share that Voting Members have endorsed changes to what it means to be a Voting Member with the CYPT in the name of equity. Current Voting Members are now being asked to update their information and opt-in to these changes. We expect that we will hear from everyone by the end of the Summer. If your organization is not currently a voting member and you are interested in learning more about it, please click here. To learn about the changes that Voting Members have endorsed, please click here.

We're also excited to share two new releases from the Backbone Team. First, our 2021 Annual Report, which reflects on the work of 2021 and what the membership is focused on in 2022. Also, we've released another 2021 Youth Impact Survey Snapshot.  Focused on youth who identified to having a long term physical or mental condition, the disaggregated data is another important step in our commitment to equity being a key focus area of belonging.
