This half-day virtual learning experience provides an opportunity for participants to engage in shared learning about how religion-based harassment and discrimination show up in our schools and classrooms. Participants will discuss the civil rights protections against religion-based harassment and discrimination, how to recognize it, as well as effective practices for creating safe, responsive, and inclusive school environments for students of all religions. Participants will engage in collaborative action planning for raising the awareness of strategies to protect students' religious freedom.

Note: This event is open to individuals from school boards, state municipalities, school districts, or other governmental units legally responsible for operating a public school or schools, or from a federally funded technical assistance and dissemination center.
