Resources for Awareness and Support

  • LGBTQ+ inclusive education helps ensure increased cultural presence in curriculum and instruction, and greater cultural competency around gender identity and sexual orientation for all students.

    Young people who identify as LGBTQ+ are among the most marginalized and excluded members of society. They are particularly vulnerable to stigma, violence, and discrimination due to their real or perceived identities.

    Education is the only way to increase our understanding and awareness of topics that we may not have been exposed to or are not knowledgeable about.

    Senate Bill S 1569 & Assembly Bill A 1335:

    Requires Boards of Education to include instruction and adopt instructional materials that accurately portray political, economic, and social contributions of persons with disabilities, and LGBT individuals in NJ and the United States for students in grades 5-12.
