Rainbow Kids & Families is an elementary school student & family led non-profit organization. The group initially formed after a local elementary age student was discouraged from sharing info about his gender identity with his peers at school. This came after previous anxiety provoking, stressful issues related to misgendering, deadnaming, and binary practices. While many school staff were supportive, LGBTQIA+ support and training appeared to be inconsistent within and between schools. Worse, certain policies and practices unintentionally put students at serious risk. This recognition brought regional families, educators, and allies together to ensure elementary schools are safe, healthy, and inclusive spaces for all kids, families, and staff.
