Support LGBTQ Students: Join HRC for a Webinar on Preventing Bullying in Your School

Post submitted by Kathy Pillsbury, HRC Welcoming Schools Consultant

In recognition of National Bullying Prevention Month, HRC’s Welcoming Schools Program and the National PTA will host a webinar tomorrow, Tuesday, October 11.

Creating a supportive school climate for LGBTQ students improves educational outcomes for all students. The webinar will teach how to best support LGBTQ students—and students who are perceived to be LGBTQ—who are at greater risk of being bullied. It will also go over how to reduce the risk of bullying for LGBTQ students in your school and advocate for all students.

Featured speakers include Laura Bay, National PTA President, and Johanna Eager, Director of HRC’s Welcoming Schools Program.

Register here for Tuesday, October 11 at 7 P.M. ET/ 4 P.M. PT
