Out of the closets and into the classrooms

 

We have more work to do before our children's history and social science curriculum is fair, accurate, inclusive, and respectful of  LGBTQ people.

School districts across the state are just now beginning to adopt the new textbooks and explore how to teach this material well.  Help us provide the training and support they need to do this job well.

    We can and must defeat this anti-LGBTQ family amendment

    Every week we are faced with another gratuitous challenge to the gains LGBTQ people and our families had so recently made, or an affront to human decency. This week it’s both. On Wednesday, the House Appropriations Committee approved a harshly anti-LGBTQ family amendment to an existing bill, allowing child service agencies widespread license to discriminate […]
