Safe Schools Coalition's Speakers Bureau: For over 20 years we have been providing trainings that support the development of safe, inclusive, and welcoming schools and communities for LGBTQ people.  Our trainers are experienced in working with a broad range of schools and community groups, including school districts, K-12 schools, youth organizations, faith-based groups, universities, non-profits, schools of education, and much more.  We build our curricula using a wide array of information, resources, research, and training tools, and we will work with you to tailor our content to best meet the needs of your group. We serve the state of Washington, but can travel elsewhere if costs are covered. Within the state, donations are encouraged, but not required. Contact Briana Herman-Brand, our speakers bureau manager - call her at 206-451-SAFE (7233) and more contact information here. Website: http://www.safeschoolscoalition.org/speakersbureau/
