To Live Out Loud

School districts such as Montgomery County Public Schools, Dallas ISD, and Pittsburgh Public Schools are leading the way in supporting LGBTQ students through offering courses, adopting policies, and embracing other inclusive measures. #pride

Many urban districts are leading the way in representing LGBTQ history and culture by offering courses, adopting policies, and taking other inclusive steps. These measures are lifelines to LGBTQ students, who face higher rates of bullying, discrimination, rejection, and suicidality than their peers.

Why is the online conference $600? In this time of COVID, possible furloughs, and added costs to districts an online conference should be free. According to your website-For early registration attendees receive access to all sessions, including the ability to access all content on-demand after the event ends.
