SOGI Conference Steps Up


The Michigan Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity Issues in Education Conference was a rousing success.

This year we were reminded of the need to create climate change in our classrooms and communities. We are taking our next steps toward creating safe and inclusive climates in our classrooms, schools, and school districts. We are stepping out to change the climate in our communities and places of work to ensure all of us are safe and free from discrimination regardless of our actual or perceived sexual orientation or gender identity.
