GLSEN’s “Captain,” Eliza Byard, just delivered a Safe Space Kit to a school in Charlotte, North Carolina! Years of planning, along with generous donations, and a ton of organizing by students like you helped us complete our campaign to send one to every middle and high school in the country.
While we know that school staff in many places have already used the tips and tools found in each kit, there are schools where these hidden gems would make all the difference in changing hearts, minds, and the overall school climate. We’re counting on student leaders, such as yourself, to find where in your school these kits are and advocate for their use. What good is a resource if it’s not being used, right?
Do you need ideas of where to look? We have a few ideas below to get you on the right path.
What are you waiting for? Shiver me timbers mate and get looking!
