Bull City Schools United  brings together parents, students, and educators to build the capacity of local schools to combat race, gender, and LGBT+ discrimination.

Nationally, LGBT students report missing at least a day of school each month to avoid bullying. LGBT youth represent roughly 40% of the national homeless youth population. Research shows that LGBT+ students with at least six supportive teachers are more likely to feel safe in school. These students are more likely to graduate, enroll in college, and report higher GPAs.

In Durham, Bull City Schools United (BCSU) is working toward creating allies in public schools by launching an innovative teacher-leadership program. The program is a partnership between staff members, community leaders, and the LGBTQ Center of Durham. Bull City Schools United has trained over 1,000 educators, engaged young people across the city in our Queer Youth Leadership Council, and made Durham Public Schools the first district in the Southeast to declare "No Hate on Day 1 ".

We need you to help us continue this work. With tools and community support, Bull City Schools United believes teachers and student leaders can take on inequities in our schools and create safe spaces for all students. We will create a model for educators around the nation to take action in their schools. Your resources will help us expand our pilot and reach more teachers. Your time will help us grow support for this project, the Durham LGBTQ Center, and the students of Durham Public Schools.
