Gay-Straight Alliances in Today's Public Schools

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Today’s Gay-Straight Alliances are forums for students to find support and safe places to discuss the subjects affecting the LGBT community in their schools and beyond. As the students strive to “educate and advocate” they become savvy about the legal issues involved with lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender students in public school settings. This session will provide school board members background information about high school Gay-Straight Alliances and an overview of the New Jersey laws that protect the rights of the LGBT students in their school districts.
