Starting in 2014, we began hosting conversations on the state of education in LGBTQ America. Corps members, alumni, activists, and community members across different regions came together to discuss the importance of making educational equity an LGBTQ priority. These conversations have continued in the form of annual LGBTQ Summits, held in four regions across the country. Members of the summit make recommendations for:
- Direct student support
- Family and community engagement
- Policy and advocacy
- School culture and climate
- Teacher preparation
At this year’s Northeast LGBTQ Summit, shown above, participants discussed how to serve as brave educators and advocate for LGBTQ students. Read more about the summit experience, and view our Deep South Summit video.
