Creating Safe Schools
for Trans* Students
Transgender or gender non-conforming youth represent a population of students who some are of the most at risk for bullying, homelessness, and suicide. Talking about trans* youth can be one of the more difficult conversations for administrators, counselors, and educators. This special workshop will assist schools in understanding terminology, legal rights of trans* youth, and assist in troubleshooting tough conversations that often times come up (bathrooms, name-changing, curricular inclusion).
Facilitating the workshop will be Sam Killermann,social justice comedian and author of The Social Justice Advocate’s Handbook: A Guide to Gender, and Nate Monson, Executive Director, for Iowa Safe Schools.
