An area of ethical concern for Public Administration must be the rising LGBT Homeless youth epidemic. The concept of homeless youth is not a new phenomenon. However, the importance of homeless LGBT youth has been woefully overlooked within public administration. Therefore, the rise in numbers of homeless LGBT youth is growing nationally and the results are often devastating. It is with a sense of urgency that this ASPA webinar if offered and that the participants offer possible solutions in addressing this epidemic. The webinar is intended for scholars, practitioners and community activist who have an interest in helping to eradicate or at least reduce LGBT youth homelessness in America.
