OUT for Safe Schools, a national campaign that aims to raise awareness of safe and supportive learning environments schools for LGBTQ students. Staff who wish to participate can wear these badges displaying their willingness to publicly identify as supportive LGBT adult allies on campus. This lets students know that “safe spaces” aren’t limited to the classrooms but extend to anywhere there is an adult who is wearing this badge.
