  • Names the actions and impacts of adults in positions of authority pushing policies that harm LGBTQI+ students and families, especially young people who are transgender, nonbinary, Black, Indigenous, and people of color. (Thanks to Corinne Green and the Equality Federation for the help with state leg!)
  • Demands that every young person have equal educational opportunity and freedom from the fear that their basic civil and educational rights, including those who identify as LGBTQI+, without exception.
