School District No. 83 SOGI (Sexual Orientation Gender Identity) Support Teacher, Amy Witt, is excited to launch a poster project fundraiser in an effort to ensure marginalized students and families feel welcome in our schools and beyond.
“In working with 2SLGBTQ+ youth in our schools, it has become clear to me that they are scanning their environments for overt signs of welcome, support, and safety,” Witt remarks.
She was inspired by a community fundraising project in Nelson this summer and hopes that schools and other workplaces will purchase a poster for display.
Witt would like to thank courageous students for the inspiration, Senior Leadership and the Board of Trustees for their enthusiasm and support, and Shauna at Design Farm for volunteering her talent. Posters or stickers are available for $5 and orders can be placed by email: email@example.com. All funds raised will support SOGI initiatives in School District No. 83.
