The Minnesota Safe Schools for All Coalition


About the Coalition

The Minnesota Safe Schools for All Coalition is a group of more than 140 education, disability, youth, religious, LGBTQ and social service organizations, as well as individuals who supported passage of the Safe & Supportive Minnesota School Law, which strengthens policies against bullying and harassment in Minnesota schools. We believe that all students deserve access to education that is equitable and effective. In order to learn, grow, and thrive, students need caring adults and supportive systems that allow them to authentically express their skills, talents, beliefs, and identities. We support policies that proactively create and maintain safe, supportive school climates, and work to create school communities where all students and families are valued.
