LGBTQ+ students and school staff in New Jersey: we’re here for you.
Through a coordinated effort by extremist anti-LGBTQ+ groups, Boards of Education throughout New Jersey are proposing and even passing policies that minimize the experiences of, stigmatize, and endanger LGBTQ+ young people in our schools.
These policies have negative effects on LGBTQ+ students and make them even more vulnerable to harassment and discrimination. What’s more, they are illegal.
Garden State Equality works directly with students, educators, and advocates all over the state, and we are closely monitoring developments at school boards.

We are keeping the following list updated with meetings where school boards are considering policies that would harm LGBTQ+ students and school staff. We need you to show up to meetings in your area to speak out against these proposals or just show support with Pride apparel and signs!
