We will discuss advocating for gender neutral bathrooms, advocating for correct name and pronoun usage, and building relationships with trusted adult allies within the school system to get youth needs met, as well as distribute resources and templates.

Greater Boston PFLAG is a group of parents, families, friends, and lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer people. We help change attitudes and create an environment of understanding so that our LGBTQ+ family members and friends can live in a world that is safe and inclusive. We accomplish this through support, education, and advocacy. 

Samaritans works to prevent suicide and support those who have lost someone to suicide through our volunteer helpline and textline, education and grief support services.
