“You can’t have two dads, that’s weird!”

Tarah Fleming
Our Family Coalition
Friday, 2:15 pm - 3:45 pm -- Rm. A-233

Teasing based on gender identity and family diversity often starts in elementary school. Our Family Coalition developed this workshop to facilitate dialog on embracing family diversity, challenging gender stereotypes, and ending name calling and bullying. Elementary school teachers and families will learn current language to use when talking about LGBTQ people, reflect on stereotypes and biases, review latest classroom materials and children’s books and learn practical ways to create more inclusive and respectful environments for all children.
