Stop Anti-Gay Bullying: Safe Schools Lobby Day in Tallahassee
2006 Safe Schools Summit and Lobby Day
March 12 to 14, 2006
Once again, Equality Florida and the Safe Schools Coalition are hosting the Annual Safe Schools Summit and Lobby Day. This is our sixth year of providing students, educators, parents and youth advocates with the resources to build support for the passage of a uniform statewide student safety and anti-bullying bill.
The student safety bill is modeled after laws passed in eight states that have proven effective in reducing bullying, harassment and violence.
Everyday in Florida's schools, hundreds of students experience harassment, bullying and violence. When students aren’t safe, when fear occupies their minds, learning is impossible.
Get involved in the fight to make Florida schools safe for everyone.
