Safe Schools Coalition Meeting

Chairing: Frieda Takamura; Recording: Ethan Blustein

RED = HELP NEEDED

 

In attendance: Beth Reis, Safe Schools Coalition (SSC) and Public Health Seattle & King County; Dream Woody, SSC and Solid Ground; Ethan Blustein, SSC and Solid Ground; Frieda Takamura, Washington Education Association (WEA); Heather Carter, Youth Suicide Prevention Program; Heather Murphy, SSC and Individual; Helen Stillman, SSC and Lambert House; Kyle Rapinan, SSC, American Friends Service Committee and Gay Lesbian Straight Education Network (GLSEN); Marsha Botzer, Ingersoll Gender Center and theTask Force; Tyler Bosma, Powerful Voices; Alex Karpoff, Individual; Katherine Shulock, Powerful Voices; Shannon Buzard, Ravenna United Methodist Church and Pacific Northwest Reconciling Ministries Network; Gabi Clayton, SSC, Families United Against Hate, PFLAG Olympia; Ryan Schwartz, Groundspark; Cresdan Maite, Gender Spectrum; Ryan Schwartz, GroundSpark/Respect for All Project; Ellen Kahn, Human Rights Campaign

(1)     HUMAN RIGHTS CAMPAIGN – Ethan, Ellen

The Coalition spoke with Ellen Kahn of the HRC Foundation’s Family Project regarding HRC’s decision not to oppose passage of a non-inclusive ENDA bill. There was some initial discussion and question/answer period (see, attached, a paraphrased, brief list of the opinions/concerns various SSC members expressed and also find attached Ellen’s statement from HRC). The Coalition has decided tentatively to – at least -- send a formal, strongly worded letter from the Coalition to be drafted by Ethan addressing the HRC National Board objecting to HRC’s decision. It will be available at the February meeting for people’s signatures.

 

We also request that everyone involved with the Coalition write and send letters of reaction to the HRC’s decision. Please send copies of these letters to Ethan (ethan@safeschoolscoalition.org) so that he can attach them to the formal Safe Schools letter.

 

We discussed four options at this point:

a.       Revoke HRC’s membership in the SSC

b.       Send a letter of sanction to HRC

c.       Send a letter of disagreement to HRC

d.       Take no action at this time.

 

It was decided to table a decision until the February 19 SSC meeting, to allow individuals and member organizations to consider what you wish SSC to do. There will also be an HRC representative – from the 501(c)4 part of HRC -- who was involved in the initial decision making process about the non-inclusive ENDA bill at the next SSC meeting. If folks are unable to attend the next SSC meeting please send your input about this decision to Beth Reis (http://www.safeschoolscoalition.org/contact/?id=4)

(2)     WASHINGTON STATE LEGISLATIVE AGENDAS – Frieda, Marsha

At December’s meeting Frieda and Marsha agreed to investigate what the 2008 legislative priorities of some member organizations and other LGBTQA groups are. Frieda reported that right now the Washington State Department of Health is required by law to apply for Federal abstinence-only-until-marriage education dollars and Planned Parenthood is supporting a bill that will change “shall” to “may”. Frieda will fill us in on what the bill # is for that legislative agenda item.  None of these legislative initiatives is SSC generated or specifically about the needs of LGBTQ students, so Beth would like folks to be thinking about what we would like to put forward in the 2009 legislative session. Whenever someone is ready to step up and lead an ad hoc committee including some of our agencies and some legislators, which could start by examining legislation other states have passed or considered, please either come to (or call in to) an SSC meeting or let Beth know.(http://www.safeschoolscoalition.org/contact/?id=4) Beth also passed along the concern, raised to her by SSC volunteer Rachel Smith-Mosel, that the Washington State social studies standards ought to be LGBT-inclusive. Frieda explained that they are quite vague and open to inclusive or non-inclusive discretion on the parts of districts and even, Kyle pointed out, individual teachers. Anyone willing to address the concern with the Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction (OSPI) please contact Rachel: bikefamilymom@comcast.net for advice about what to say and who to contact.

(3)     NO NAME-CALLING WEEK – Beth

As we had agreed in several previous years to become a partner organization with GLSEN for No Name-Calling Week, we renewed our support again this year. More info: www.nonamecallingweek.org

(4)     MEMBERSHIP REPORT – Piper, Tad  

a)       Piper Sangston and Tad Buhman are stepping down as SSC membership co-chairs. The Coalition would like to express our Gratitude to Piper and Tad for 10+ years of great work!! Thank you!!

b)      SSC Needs a Membership Chair!!! Is it you? You do NOT need to be located in Washington State to do this job. It is a time commitment of 20-30 hours or so in January or February each year and then just a couple of hours a month maximum, logging emailed and mailed organizational memberships, forwarding checks to our accountant at Lifelong, and reporting in at monthly SSC meetings. PLEASE think about stepping up. Let Beth know.(http://www.safeschoolscoalition.org/contact/?id=4)

d)       It’s time to renew for 08!!! Go to: http://www.safeschoolscoalition.org/members_join-renew.html

c)       We still need that last volunteer and, ideally, a second person for each day of the week. So there are 8 positions still open!!! Are you up for volunteering as an Intervention Specialist?

December 2007 and 2007 Annual Web Stie Report

Gabi Clayton, Web Spinner

 

Tuesday, January 8, 2008 email received:

 

The Message: AWESOME SITE AND RESOURCES!!!!!
Over the years I have looked for LGBT friendly kid books and other resources to share with my children's schools, and have never seen anything as comprehensive and accessible as your site.
 
YOU ROCK!
 
My son's principal (in San Diego, Ca) is willing to do a training with staff after I discussed my son's perception of pervasive anti gay attitudes and lack of prevention or awareness by staff. Your site will be a great resource, and I will be spreading the word to individuals and organizations. keep it up.
 
I got the sender’s permission to post it on the website without the included email address, simply identified as SC. It’s on the home page under “WOW! Testimonial” and I would love to start collecting others we can share too. If someone needs that email address for a coalition reason let me know. 

 

I changed the blackboard image on all the SSC pages. The old one looked like this:

 

 

And the new one looks like this:

 

 

We have ten songs on the website now, and are still looking for more.

Beth asked if we can post videos from places like YouTube. Yes, if they have an imbed code.
