A Safe Space is a place where anyone can relax and be able to fully express themselves, without fear of being made to feel uncomfortable, unwelcome, or unsafe. Bullying and harassment are not acceptable. Uplift Education respects ALL people regardless of race, ethnicity, gender expression, sexual orientation, socio-economic background, age, religion, and ability.
Out For Safe Schools
Uplift is a participating district in the OUT for Safe Schools® program. The National OUT for Safe Schools® Campaign was created to encourage school staff to publicly identify as supportive LGBTQ allies on campus. An OUT for Safe Schools® ally is someone who advocates for the safety, inclusion and celebration of LGBTQ individuals. This lets students know that “safe spaces” aren’t limited to the classroom but extend to anywhere there is an adult wearing this badge.
