“The purpose of this project is to continue to create a safe space for all students and staff regardless of identity. Capital City Public Charter School has already started this process through our annual teacher-led Equity Groups. We endeavor to continue this work by replicating a similar model that is inclusive of students. This opportunity will provide a safe space for expression and the building of compassion, awareness and community. Our teachers will participate in Gender Sensitivity training. The creation of a Gender Neutral Alliance will allow for a place to bond and build school cultural and awareness. The MS Gender Neutral Alliance culminating activity will be the designing and decorating of a float that will participate in the D.C. LGBTQI PRIDE parade in June 2019.”
