Developed in partnership with the Child Welfare League of America (CWLA), this tool kit gives guidance on an array of issues affecting LGBTQ youth and the adults and organizations who provide them with out-of-home care.
This kit is designed to help you know your rights at school and make sure they’re respected, and to give you concrete ideas about how you can make a difference in your school and community. You have the right to be who you are. You have the right to be out, safe and respected at school.
