DPS #61 Queer and Trans Student Inclusion

0 have signed. Let’s get to 1,000!


There is a lot of fear and misunderstanding regarding queer and trans students. Senseless violence and suicide rates among the queer and trans community is at an all-time high. It has been made clear that Decatur Public Schools [District #61] faculty and staff would benefit greatly from further training on diversity and inclusion. 

Our goal is to create and maintain all-inclusive safe spaces in Decatur Public Schools and around the community to promote the safety and livelihood of queer and trans youth. In the near future, we would like to facilitate parent-teacher forums and assist in the development of LGBTQ+ policies for DPS #61. 

The Decatur Pride Committee is fully committed and dedicated to advocating for queer and trans youth who cannot otherwise advocate for themselves. 

Please consider signing this petition and passing it along! 

With love,
