The American Schools Counselor Association and PFLAG National - working together to make schools safer!

The May/June 2011 edition of American Schools Counselor Association (ASCA) ASCA School Counselor magazine highlights best practices, practical tools and strategies that counselors are using to create safe and welcoming environments for LGBTQ youth in schools. As you know, PFLAG has taken a leadership role in school safety, with our Safe Schools program, and that program’s National coordinator, Mekina Morgan, was asked to submit and article for the edition.

The article is targeted at elementary school counselors, although the strategies presented can be used by counselors in secondary schools as well, in public, private and parochial educational environments.

Mekina will be offering a workshop at the June 2011 ASCA convention in Seattle, WA, based in part on the materials presented in her article.

PFLAG National would like to thank ASCA for this amazing opportunity and their continued efforts to support affirming school climates for LGBTQ students.

Indianapolis PFLAG goes to the Indiana School Counselor's Conference every year. Each year, the counselor's are more open and accepting to our message.
