    Webinar: Creating Safe, Inclusive, and Affirming Schools for LGBTQ+ Students

    2/29/24, 4:00-5:00 PM via Zoom

    The increased politicization of LGBTQ+ inclusion and the intensity of anti-LGBTQ+ rhetoric at school board meetings and state legislatures are profoundly impacting the safety and mental wellness of queer students. At the same time, youth-serving professionals are increasingly more hesitant to address LGBTQ+ inclusion work as they fear pushback. Our students need adult advocates with the knowledge necessary to advocate for safe and affirming environments and the skills to effectively overcome resistance. This session is for those looking to sharpen their advocacy skills to promote safe, inclusive, and affirming schools for LGBTQ+ students.
