Equality Texarkana Meets With TASD

Local Equality Group Works to End Bullying in Schools

Texarkana, AR:  Members of Equality Texarkana met with administrators of the Texarkana Arkansas School District Monday, July 24 to propose a partnership to help fight bullying in local schools. Equality Texarkana gave a presentation concerning the impact of bullying, focusing on the increased risk of suicide and the increased truancy rate among bullied children.  The group proposed implementing several strategies within TASD schools, including making anonymous reporting more accessible, surveying staff and students about their bullying experiences, providing sensitivity training and suicide awareness for staff members, and working to promote a safer, more accepting school environment for all students. The group also gave information to the administrators concerning Equality Texarkana’s free group therapy for LGBT members and support group for parents of LGBT children to ensure school counselors are aware of these valuable services.   Equality Texarkana invited the TASD administrators to share the district’s specific needs so that the group can be a useful resource to the community.  TASD invited Equality Texarkana to be involved in the Day of Silence at North Heights Jr High, which takes place April 27, 2018 and strives to raise awareness about the impact of anti-LGBT bullying, harassment and discrimination. Equality Texarkana Founder and CEO Jimmy Pope, Jr. explains how these efforts work toward the group’s mission to fight discrimination and make the Texarkana area a more friendly place for all: “The statistics concerning bullying in general are alarming, but the statistics concerning the bullying of minorities are also staggering.

Educational Opportunities and Scholarships Expanded for Foster Care and Low Income Children

Oklahoma – With the 2017 legislative session having come to a close, groups working to increase educational options for Oklahoma students are celebrating significant policy victories.

Ruiz said that over 1000 parents worked with ChoiceMatters for Kids to send over 15,000 emails, letters or phone calls to the State Capitol on behalf of those bills and other school choice policies. Senate Bill 301 expands the successful Lindsey Nicole Henry (LNH) Scholarship program.
