Blog Posts from February 2013
In a recent post, I focused on the rights that students, particularly public school students, have and the anti-discrimination laws that provide protection to youth as well as adults in employment, housing and public accommodations.
GLAD’s Youth Initiative is also working to make sure youth in the child welfare system or the juvenile justice system know their rights, and we are exploring ways to increase those protections.
If your rights are being violated or you have questions about your rights, or if you work with LGBTQ youth in one of these areas and have questions, GLAD would like to hear from you. Contact GLAD’s Legal InfoLine by email or live chat or call our toll-free number, 800-455-GLAD (4523). A friendly volunteer will assist you—it’s free and confidential.
