Inclusive Education Means Safe, Welcoming Schools for All Students

Schools should be safe and welcoming for all children—on this point responsible adults agree. But currently, discriminatory laws and censorship policies threaten the well-being of children. LGBTQ+ young people and families are being targeted, along with Black, Indigenous and other people of color and members of historically marginalized groups, whose histories and experiences are being misrepresented and erased.

During this back-to-school season, we encourage parents, caregivers, educators and community members to support the rights of all children to safety and representation. Advocate for the children and families in your communities who are being harmed. These LFJ resources provide information about inclusive education practices that benefit all children.
