It’s FRIIIIIIIIIIDAAAAAAAAAY! The weather ☀️ is nice and we’ve spent the day talking all things Q***r + Trans inclusion for students.

This morning we journeyed to Columbia Heights Education Campus. 175+ middle and high school staff laughed, learned and shared experiences as we explored “Reframing Problematic Language: LGBTQ+ Support & Inclusion”.

Shout out to Principal T & Ms. Ermis, LGBTQ+ Liaison, who intentionally prioritize this work for the entire school body! 💛💙

Theeeeeen…

We caught up with our friends at SMYAL & the School Engagement Specialist, Janeé! 🩷🤍
