We are grateful for our partnership with the Waterloo Region District School Board which has enabled us to help create Gay Straight Alliances (GSAs) in our local schools. GSAs have played a crucial role in improving the mental health and well-being of LGBTQ students and creating a safer and more inclusive school environment for all.
