SEXUALITY AND GENDER ALLIANCESAGA Meeting Hour: Tuesdays at 3:15 in Room 301Mission Statement:
The Sexuality and Gender Alliance strives to assure that each member of our school community is valued and respected regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity/expression.
We believe that such an atmosphere engenders a positive sense of self, which is the basis of educational achievement and personal growth. Since homophobia and heterosexism undermine a healthy school climate, we work to educate teachers, students and the public at large about the damaging effects these forces have on youth and adults alike. We recognize that forces such as racism and sexism have similarly adverse impacts on communities and we support our community in seeking to redress all such inequities.
The Sexuality and Gender Alliance seeks to develop a school climate where difference is valued for the positive contribution it makes in creating a more vibrant and diverse community. We welcome any and all individuals as members, regardless of sexual orientation, gender identity/expression or occupation, who are committed to seeing this philosophy realized in our school and community.
