Safe Schools Rapid Response Network

The Respect for All Project

The Respect for All Project

GroundSpark's Respect For All Project facilitates the development of inclusive, bias-free schools and communities by providing media resources, support and training to youth, educators and service providers.

Our Respect for All Project participates in the safe schools rapid response network, an organized, staffed collaboration that can enhance the ability of allies to effectively frame community dialogue around LGBT issues in schools when faced with anti-LGBT opposition. The network connects local educators, students, families and advocates with experts across the country who can provide information, support, strategic guidance, messaging advice, talking points, media training, organizing tools and peer connections. By acting as a portal through which allies can access support, the network has helped protect LGBT-inclusive policies, practices and curricula around the country that were threatened by anti-LGBT opposition.

If you are faced with a situation in which the network might provide help, contact the network coordinator at safeschoolsrapidresponse@gmail.com
