Learn about the local campaigns in Dallas and Los Angeles and their strategies for supporting LGBTQ+ students during the Covid-19 pandemic. Participants will learn effective techniques to reduce harm and increase inclusivity of LGBTQ+ students, creating safe spaces on school campuses and in remote and virtual school settings. This interactive workshop will provide best practices to support the unique needs of LGBTQ+ students that school officials can start using TOMORROW on their campuses.
