Don’t miss the powerful presentation PFLAG is putting together to inform the community about the status of LGBTQ safety in our local schools. Robbie Rodriguez, from Equality California, will talk about the results of the California Safe Schools Index Survey, and local students will talk about their experiences in our schools. We hope to begin a community dialogue about specific, concrete steps that can be taken locally to improve the lives of our LGBTQ students.
