Tips for LGBTQ+ advocacy for students and educators:

  • Learn what legal rights LGBTQ+ students have on the local and state level

  • Keep detailed records of any incidences that occur

  • Read your school district's student policies

  • Contact your local compliance officers, there should be officers for Civil Rights, Title XI, and HIB
