Lynn Johnson

Assistant Secretary, Administration for Children & Families

In 2020, Assistant Secretary of the Administration of Children and Families (ACF) Lynn Johnson launched the All-In Campaign with the goal of ensuring every child has a family to love and support them. This campaign included a Youth Engagement Team - made up of 11 young people with lived experience in foster care from 10 states. The Youth Engagement Team was supported by Joshua Christian Oswald, who served as the Youth Engagement Coordinator under Associate Commissioner Jerry Milner. 

See the Children's Bureau webpage on the team.
