June is PRIDE Month!
June is the time to uplift and affirm our Lesbian, Bisexual, Gay, Trans/Nonbinary/Gender Diverse, and Queer+ (LGBTQ+) communities.
LAUSD is a long standing advocate for affirming learning and working environments for LGBTQ+ students, staff and families. Visit the Human Relations SOGIE link for a plethora of lessons and resources. Learn about the landmark cases of LGBT activism and resistance to police harassment occured at Gene Compton's Cafeteria in San Francisco (1966), Black Cat Tavern in Silverlake (1967) and the Stonewall Inn in New York (1969). Expanded libraries of resources can be found at TIME magazine, Discovery Education, Facing History and Ourselves, ADL, LA Public Library, Learning for Justice, and more.

Juneteenth, June 19th 1865, commemorates the date the enslaved people of Texas learned of their freedom! Please check out the Advisory Lesson created to teach students about this important event in history, as well as the Zoom background.
President Biden stated, “By making Juneteenth a federal holiday, all Americans can feel the power of this day and learn from our history -- and celebrate progress and grapple with the distance we've come (and) the distance we have to travel."
