Helping Trans Kids at School

The Human Rights Campaign Foundation has published “Schools In Transition,” a guide to creating and maintaining safe and supportive environments for transgender children in schools.

The guide is part of their larger “Welcoming Schools” campaign, and is supplemented by a comprehensive website with activities, discussion points, talking points, lesson plans, professional development, workshops and public events, guides for working with families, blogs, local resources, and so much more.

“We could not be more proud of this partnership with other leaders dedicated to creating safe, supportive schools for transgender students,” said Ellen Kahn, Director of HRC Foundation’s Children, Youth and Families Program. “This groundbreaking publication will provide in-depth and practical guidance for school administrators, counselors, teachers, and parents––all of whom are key to ensuring that transgender children can learn and thrive at school.”
