LGBTQ+ Education 101 in the Classroom
As educators, it is imperative we continue to foster safe and brave spaces for our students to learn. Join together to learn about LGBTQ+ terminology, history, and diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) practices to make our spaces LGBTQ+ affirming for all learners and their families. This is the first in a two-part session, the second of which will be led by Rabbi Micah Buck-Yael on January 14th from 2:30 pm – 3:30 pm ET. This is a judgement-free zone; all levels of understanding are welcome!
