Family Advocacy

Encourage families you know to join Our Family Coalition and Welcoming Schools in the Family Advocacy Program for Oakland schools. The goals of the program are to honor diversity, challenge gender stereotypes, and stop name-calling and teasing.

FAIR Education Act Implementation

Integrate the historical contributions of LGBTQ people and current events related to the LGBTQ movement into social studies curricula, as mandated by California's Fair, Accurate, Inclusive, and Respectful (FAIR) Education Act. Utilize lesson plans from our FAIR Education Act website. We also recommend "100 LGBTQ Black Women You Should Know: The Epic Black History Month Megapost."
