Thriving, Not Just Surviving: Centering the Needs of Transgender and Non-binary Students at School
As anti-trans laws clash with Pride month, trans and non-binary students need advocates at school now more than ever. Following a brief introduction of gender identity terminology, and an overview of the recent Title IX regulations, this webinar will focus on a discussion with our trans and non-binary youth panelists on what educators and administrators can do to create and maintain positive, supportive school climates where LGBTQIA+ students can thrive.

The webinar aims to:

• Raise awareness of the harmful impacts of recent proposed and enacted state legislation targeting transgender and non-binary students' rights
• Identify helpful strategies for educators, administrators, and parents to protect and advocate for trans and non-binary students
• Increase understanding of the scope of Title IX, state laws, and local ordinances that protect trans and non-binary students

Presenters:
• Preston Heldibridle, Executive Director at the Pennsylvania Youth Congress
• Shiwali Patel, Director of Justice for Student Survivors at the National Women's Law Center

Co-Facilitators:
