This kit is designed to help educators become effective allies to LGBT students. It provides background information on the experiences of many LGBT students and anti-LGBT bias, describes specific actions that school staff can take to support LGBT youth, discusses ways to teach students about combating bias and bullying, and provides strategies that can be used to promote change within schools.

This kit helps educators create a safe space at school by providing them with tools to support and advocate for LGBT youth.

School staff can use this guide to gain an understanding of how to be an effective ally. Additionally, educators may make themselves visible allies by displaying the Safe Space posters and stickers in their offices and classrooms.
