We Need Safe Places, or, Overturning Tables

We have created a culture where many people feel unsafe. We have a culture where people like Adam Lanza and Hannah Bonser slip through the cracks. We have a culture where HSLDA, the largest national homeschool organization, consistently and vocally puts its vendetta against the Child Protective Services above the pressing need to address child abuse in homeschooling subcultures. We have a culture where LGBTQ students — who daily experience bigotry, dehumanization, depression, and suicidal urges — are directly denied the chance to have a “safe place” at conservative, Christian colleges.
