All students in Utah have the right to receive an education in a safe and inclusive environment, one that’s free from harassment and discrimination based on race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, religious beliefs, and physical and mental abilities. Creating equitable, inclusive classrooms for ALL Utah kids means our state will have happier, healthier adults who are more likely to be financially stable and more civically engaged, and less likely to become involved in the criminal justice system.
