LGBTQ youth are disproportionately impacted by mental health disparities, bullying, homelessness and substance use. During the pandemic, some students may have found respite at home from bullying and exclusion, while others may be at home in unsupportive environments or have lost important sources of support.

Join us for a webinar with GLSEN and the County of Santa Clara Office of LGBTQ Affairs for a discussion about the status of LGBTQ students and strategies schools can consider to better support LGBTQ youth. You’ll hear about:

  • Results of the brand new flagship report, the GLSEN National School Climate Survey
  • National and local research and initiatives centering lived experiences of and well-being for LGBTQ youth of color
  • The importance of interrupting and reporting incidents of anti-LGBTQ bullying and harassment
  • How the County of Santa Clara shifted efforts to reach educators during remote learning
  • Tools for educators and administrators around trainings, incorporating LGBTQ-inclusive curriculum, and more
