AB 2153 authored by Assemblymember Tony Thurmond (D- Richmond), provides educators with the training and resources they need to better support LGBTQ students in schools and the community. The bill passed out of the Legislature yesterday.
“LGBTQ students are subject to markedly higher rates of bullying than their peers which can lead to negative psychological effects,” Thurmond said. “As leaders, we have a responsibility to protect and support all of our students. There are available resources and we need to make sure our educators are aware of them.”
