Gay-Straight Alliance for Decatur County Community Schools
This petition is to ultimately establish a Gay-Straight Alliance within our Decatur County Community Schools.
A Gay-Straight Alliance (GSA) can provide the following, but is not limited to:
- Creating a diverse and inclusive environment for our children, within their schools, and bridging the gap between our LGBTQ students and their peers.
- Providing support, safety, and confidentiality to students who are struggling with and/or experiencing harassment due to their sexual orientation, gender identity or identification.
- Providing a social group/network where our LGBTQ youth can feel accepted and respected, and can discuss issues and learn coping skills.
- Teaching our kids to support and value each other as Human Beings, through education and social interaction.
This not only benefits our youth, but it also benefits our entire community!!
