It Gets Better w/ LGBTQ+ Youth Voices

As youth-serving educators and professionals at conferences like SXSW EDU, we spend a lot of time talking about our kids and on behalf of them. It's time to turn over the mic. Please join us for this incredible panel featuring the It Gets Better Project's Youth Voices - a group of LGBTQ+ young ambassadors sharing their perspectives, insights, and ideas on how to make safer and more inclusive schools for all.
