SCHOOL DISTRICT PROCLAIMS OCTOBER LGBT HISTORY MONTH Photo courtesy of the Palm Beach County School District

For the third consecutive year, Compass Youth received the School District’s Proclamation of LGBT History Month on October 21, 2015. While it was a great honor for the youth to receive the proclamation, they look forward to continued progress in improving school climate for LGBTQ students. The School District’s proclamation validates that Palm Beach County supports Compass and LGBT youth. On behalf of the community, we extend our appreciation to the School District of Palm Beach County.

Compass Youth, Jacob thanks the School Board of Palm Beach County: “Your recognition of LGBT History Month sends the message to students that we don’t have to be divided by gender, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, or social class. This ties us together as one. Thank you.” Photo courtesy of Jackie Garetano

Compass Youth, Mariah Rivera, addresses the School Board, stating, “Education regarding LGBT issues and history is still severely lacking in today’s school curriculum. People like Karl Heinrich Ulrich, Edith Windsor, and Laverne Cox deserve a place in our textbooks.”
