School district to institute Safe Space program

Los Alamos Public Schools’ Healthy Schools Initiative is hosting a community event to learn more about GLSEN’s Safe Space Initiative.

GLSEN, which stands for the Gay, Lesbian & Straight Education Network, is the leading national education organization working to create safe schools for all students.

The event will be held from 5:30-7:00 p.m. July 29 at UNM-LA Building 6, Room 631.

GLSEN strives to ensure that each member of every school community is valued and respected regardless of sexual orientation, gender identity or gender expression. Havens Levitt, GLSEN Albuquerque chair, Nationally Certified GLSEN trainer and retired high school teacher, will lead the presentation.

Levill began teaching in 1982 and advocated for LGBTQ+ students during her career. She started the first Albuquerque Public School lesbian/gay student support group and is a founding member of GLSEN Albuquerque. For the last six years, the Albuquerque chapter has worked with school districts to improve policies and provide training to educators that will create a more supportive environment for LGBTQ+ students.
