On Thursday, Assistant Deputy Secretary for Safe and Drug-Free Schools Kevin Jennings and Senior Policy Advisor for the Office of Elementary and Secondary Education Steven Means will participate in the Minnesota LGBT and Little Earth Listening and Learning Session hosted by the Minnesota Department of Education in St Paul, MN. Jennings’ session will cover topics specific to LGBT issues, specifically the value of youth driven/youth delivered programming (Day of Silence, Safe Schools Ambassadors, Gay Straight Alliance) and ensuring student safety within schools.

Thursday’s audience will include both youth and adult contacts from organizations and schools throughout Minnesota. The event is a follow-up to the Listening Sessions Jennings held with LGBT and Little Earth youth in November 2009 and March 2010.
