About this Event

Join us on March 12, 2020 for the Student Day at the Capitol. For the past 15 years, Iowa Safe Schools has worked in the Iowa Legislature to pass important legislation supporting LGBTQ youth and fighting back against attacks to take away protections. Thanks to the work of students in conjunction with Iowa Safe Schools staff, the Iowa Legislature passed our state’s anti-bully law and extended civil rights to include sexual orientation and gender identity.

Students from across Iowa will have a chance to meet legislators and advocate for issues that are important to them! Policy issues we will be discussing include banning the prehistoric practice of conversion therapy, bullying prevention legislation, and fighting to ensure LGBTQ individuals continue to be included in civil rights law.
