From NJ Pride:
The world is moving toward greater equality. But LGBTQ children still face backlash, bullying, and ongoing discrimination in school, from the middle grades on up through college. As part of North Jersey Pride Month, PFLAG and North Jersey Pride will co-host a discussion designed to help parents of LGTBQ children become their kids’ best advocates, both in and out of school.
