Welcoming SchoolsPost by Rohmteen Mokhtari, Former HRC Coordinator, Family Project

Are you looking for resources to make your pre-school, elementary school or child-serving agency more inclusive?

Join the HRC Foundation, Oregon Safe Schools and Communities Coalition and Portland State University this Monday for a free day-long Introduction to Welcoming Schools.

A program of the HRC Foundation, Welcoming Schools provides a comprehensive approach to embracing family diversity, avoiding gender stereotyping and ending bias-based bullying.

The training will provide participants with: 

  • An overview of Oregon state laws and policies relating to bullying and harassment
  • An overview of best practices around bullying prevention and building a positive school climate
  • Classroom resources including vetted children’s books
  • Teacher training resources to bring back to your building
  • Practice talking about gender identity and sexual orientation in age-appropriate ways

The training is designed to meet the needs of pre-school and elementary-level educators, school staff, and child serving agencies.
