With Police Free Schools campaigns in motion across the nation, these words from prison abolitionist and scholar Ruth Wilson Gilmore would be a great way to help us set out our intentions. ✨

🗣️ Students deserve to feel safe and affirmed in their environments. Period!

To be trauma-informed, educators must have training and knowledge on how trauma can affect behavior, the brain, and overall wellness.

Here is some back to school inspiration for you!

Image Credit Bayard Rustin Center for Social Justice (Bayard Rustin Center for Social Justice)

"We need, in every community, a group of angelic troublemakers.” said Bayard Rustin. As we return back to schools, we would like to uplift the leadership of Trans and Q***r students / GSA club leaders whether publicly out or not! Just like Bayard Rustin said "angelic troublemakers" GSA youth are leaders in educational justice and school climate change, ready to stir it up with the right kinda trouble against transphobia and q***rphobia!

Bayard Rustin was a gay union organizer and strategist, who's leadership led the success of the Civil Rights Movement. He was Dr King's closest advisor, who faced homophobia causing him to lead in the shadows. Nonetheless, Rustin's strategy and leadership is still looked upon as a huge legacy of the Civil Rights movement and other social political movements in U.S.

Oakland has experienced a lot of institutionalized racism, culminating in the shooting of Oscar Grant by police. That prompted the Black Organizing Project to take action, and they've won major victories for the community, including getting OPD out of schools.

How to Be an Elite Athlete

On the heels of pride month, and just before the Olympics, Teen Vogue and them. partnered up to take a look at what it really means to be a trans athlete.

Teen Vogue @TeenVogue @them them.

We talked to three trans athletes about what it takes to be elite. Their answers show they have no advantage, they just train hard.

🔮 We love this Letter from the Year 2071, imagining a new education system and reminding us that q***r and trans communities are creating the future today. We will continue envisioning a better way to love and to be. 🔮

"The challenge we tackled, which so many of our ancestors fought for, is education. For our new society, education goes beyond the “schoolhouse” and the “campus.” And there are no barriers that exclude anyone from learning. Teaching and learning go on everywhere, with billboards, songs and television commercials that teach, rather than sell. And rather than excluding anyone from education, or labeling some of our precious children "smart” and others “not smart,” we recognize all are geniuses. It is the job of learning coaches and co-learners to help them find that genius — and to apply it to the needs of the community and society."

"Today, we celebrate love in all of its forms and expressions. Our q***r and trans family have taught us to let go of rigid gender roles, narrow-minded and patriarchal notions of family, and beauty and pleasure. We are happier as a people. And freedom is not simply freedom to do as we please, but freedom to serve, help, contribute, build and dance together."

This is a good read! "A Pride flag won’t magically solve the issues of engrained homophobia in our city. But reversing this decision and putting up the flag would show that Roseville is actually invested in fostering a thriving LGBTQ community — no longer content watching its young, q***r high school graduates leave and never return."
