Public Affairs - Pizza Klatch

In 2018, The Human Rights Campaign Foundation released the largest-of-its-kind survey ever of more than 12,000 LGBTQ teenagers across the nation, their LGBTQ Youth Report. According to this study, these teenagers are not only experiencing heartbreaking levels of stress, anxiety and rejection, but also overwhelmingly feel unsafe in their own school classrooms. LGBTQ young people who participated in the survey also made it crystal clear that supportive families and inclusive schools are key to their success and well-being. There's an organization here in Washington who's trying to do just that. They are Pizza Klatch and their mission is to foster resiliency in LGBTQ+ youth and create a safe and positive school experience through support, education and empowerment. To talk about LGBTQ+ issues and how they are being addressed in schools today, we've invited Rosalinda Noriega, Executive Director of Pizza Klatch, and BRETT RADER, Program Manager.
