In this course, we will introduce the importance of creating safe spaces for LGBTQ+ students, and especially those who are Black, Indigenous, People of Color (BIPOC). We will review NEA’s Racial Justice Framework, data from the nation’s leading research organizations on LGBTQ+ youth and discuss how we as educators can intentionally create safer spaces for LGBTQ+ students.
By the end of this course, you will expand your awareness about school safety issues for LGBTQ+ students, analyze the factors that affect their safety, and develop action plans to create safer spaces for LGBTQ+ students in your learning community.
This course has the following learning goals for all participants:
- Identify factors that contribute to a safe/unsafe learning environment for LGBTQ+ students
- Identify additional barriers to safety for BIPOC students who are also LGBTQ+
- Learn how to become an LGBTQ+ ally
- Create an action plan on how to create safer schools for all students
