LGBTQ Histories: What You Didn’t Learn in Your K-12 Social Studies Classes!

*Didn’t get much LGBTQ content in your K-12 education? 
*Want to know what you missed? 
*Looking for ways to make your classrooms more inclusive? 
*Interested in learning more about these resources to be a more
effective advocate for content in your child's schools?
Come learn from two guests: a 2nd grade teacher who has being doing great things in the classroom, and a university professor who helped develop recommendations for K-12 LGBTQ+ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer+) content. We’ll talk about the FAIR (Fair, Accurate, Inclusive and Respectful) Act, the opportunities it has presented, how the way gender and sexuality is being taught is becoming richer and go through a curriculum module ourselves! Everyone welcome!
