New York Democratic Committee calls on state to implement LGBTQIA+ curriculum


While some states are taking bold steps to broadly erase queer and trans people from educational institutions, New York State Democratic Committee members approved a resolution calling for LGBTQIA+ inclusive K-12 curriculum in public schools.

The resolution, passed during the May 11 general meeting, is non-binding and does not actually change policies in New York schools, but it sends a strong signal to the State Legislature and governor and injects some momentum into an existing proposal to establish inclusive curriculum in schools.
