Public Rally: Stand up for Safe Schools

Postby tarawb » March 8th, 2016, 10:53 am

Saturday 12th March 2PM

Sydney Town Hall
483 George Street, Sydney, Australia 2000

This rally aims to bring together all those who support and want to defend the important work of the Safe Schools Coalition.

Community Action Agianst Homophobia, along with many others, are appalled by the Government's 'review' of the program brought on by its own members and the Australian Christian Lobby, with the aim of shutting down access to the program.

The Safe Schools program addresses issues of bullying and vilification, and promotes acceptance of those who otherwise would struggle to gain access to the necessary information and support. These young people may be confused with or questioning their sexuality, they may have struggled with their own gender identity, they may have been a victim of bullying, in any case, these are our communities most vulnerable people and we MUST stand up for them and fight for the continuation of, and indeed increased funding for a 'life changing' and most importantly 'life saving' program.

So many people from our community would still be with us today had the Safe Schools program been available 10, 20 and even 30 years ago. It is saving young lives.

We can't go back to how things were when the system turned a blind eye to those of us that are 'different'. When the needs of our most vulnerable were not included in curriculum and a time when teachers were unable to gain access and support for them to work with students who fell into a minority.

Invite your friends, share this event, and get to this important rally.
