Dr. Jen O'Ryan: Creating Safe Spaces in your School for LGBTQ+ Humans

“The reason that I wrote the book is because there’s so many people out there that individually can make a huge difference. They have that spark inside and they want to make the world a better place. The bystander effect is very real. How do you actually interrupt that in a way that’s safe in a way that doesn’t put somebody in harm?”
