Parent and Family Supports


In January of 2016 a group of parents, educators, and youth came together in a local school district board meeting room to discuss gender diversity issues and concerns for the youth. In May of 2016 some participants from that group came together again through a UOTeachOUT community forum to connect with Portland based TransActive and to learn from Heffernan and Gutierez-Schmich about an elementary education approach to Welcoming Schools for gender diversity.   In preparing for the fall of 2016 the group is launching a Family Support Group for families with gender diverse youth.
