READ THIS, SAVE LIVES: A TEACHER'S GUIDE TO CREATING SAFER CLASSROOMS FOR LGBTQ+ STUDENTS

Written by 16 year old Sameer Jha, this book is intended to help teachers create classrooms and schools where LGBTQ+ students can thrive. The project has deep personal relevance for Sameer, because he was severely bullied for being different in elementary and middle school. As he grew older, he learned more about his own identity and came out as queer and trans. He eventually found love and acceptance, as well as a new purpose: to put an end to anti-LGBTQ+ bullying in schools.

Find more than a 100 actionable tips created with busy, resource constrained teachers in mind. An entire chapter is devoted to an extraordinary teacher who has transformed her own school using many of the same principles included in this guide. Read This, Save Lives is brimming with expert quotes, sobering statistics, cutting edge research, critical terminology, real world case studies, and resources from some of the best LGBTQ+ rights organizations in the country. Get ready to be inspired by one of the few books on the topic of LGBTQ+ youth safety that has actually been written by an LGBTQ+ youth!
