LGBTQ Sex Ed Leadership Project

By Charlotte Robinson, March 05, 2021

The National LGBTQ Task Force launched their Sex Ed Leadership Project March 3rd following the success of two mini-conferences that offered training & programming on LGBTQ+ inclusive sex ed policy work. The project aimed to strengthen local efforts by young LGBTQ activists to advocate for sex education policy changes. It consists of 10 virtual sessions designed to strengthen advocacy skills & focus on navigating democratic processes to enact sex education policy change. Taissa Morimoto, National LGBTQ Task Force Senior Policy Counsel stated, “This type of information & training opportunities that specifically address the needs of LGBTQ+ youth are seriously lacking & this ambitious & comprehensive program will provide participants with detailed, focused & impactful information & specific strategies paired with the tools to put them into practice & make a difference in their communities.” The course was designed for people ages 15 to 28, for young LGBTQ advocates, activists & people who are new to advocacy or want to learn more about how to advance comprehensive, LGBTQ-centered, & inclusive sex ed. Some of these sessions include presentations on storytelling for change by Rachel Hill, Community Outreach & Engagement Manager at Equality Texas; sex education laws & policies by Jennifer Driver, Founder of Take Root Strategies & effective sex education messaging by Zach Einstein, Senior Account Executive at Spitfire Strategies. The course was developed to help young LGBTQ people build movement & create strategies for implementing a more comprehensive, inclusive sex ed. The National LGBTQ Task Force advances full freedom, justice & equity for LGBTQ people. They are building a future where everyone can be free to be their entire selves in every aspect of their lives. For More Info...
