Legislating Students’ Identities: A Spirit & Place Festival Event

November 10, 2022 @ 4:30 pm 6:00 pm

Hear from students on the ways in which their identities are being policed in schools, related to sexual orientation, gender, & race.

About this event

Students have been the target of state legislatures across the country, including Indiana, in recent years. From bans on trans athletes and classroom censorship bills to dress codes that disproportionally affected students of color, student rights to be who they are seem constantly under attack. What do students themselves have to say about this?

This event invites the public, especially other youth (14+), to small resource fair featuring “know your rights” content followed by a panel discussion and small group conversations led by students.

A partnership between ACLU of Indiana, Indiana Youth Group, Shelly’s Voice Advocacy, and other Gay-Straight Alliance Groups.
