As advocates for young LGBT kids and youth in general, we are strong advocates for the Dignity for All Students act that was passed & implemented state-wide in July 2012. We are posting this 2013 updated DFAS amendment to encourage schools & parents to enforce this law.
ALL students should feel safe in school. ALL NY schools must abide by & enforce this law. Kids are counting on us to have their backs. Let's not let them down.
