Ally Action Overview
Programs: Training and Education. Ally Action engages educators, staff and parents with the skills and tools to promote safe schools for all, regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity/expression. We provide opportunities for connection, resource sharing and peer support.
Youth Leadership in Action. Ally Action encourages and supports youth in action in their communities, providing them with opportunities to empower themselves and to lead community change. Ally Action youth leaders are at the forefront of speaking out and making anti-LGBT bullying, harassment and name-calling unaceeptable in their classrooms, locker rooms and across their school communities.
Bringing Policies to Life. Ally Action brings policies off of the shelves, out of the books and into the everyday lives of students, staff and families. We work with school community leaders and build issues-based partnerships with other education and social justice organizations to support comprehensive implementation of safe schools policies and plans. We are interested in community-based, people-centric strategies for making these ssafe schools policies work.
