Safe Schools Coalition Palm Springs/Desert Communities

This organization counsels bullied students and their families when school districts do not follow laws providing support for LGBT students. It also works alongside GSAs and other school groups to assist administration in making the school environment one that celebrates diversity.

It works primarily within the three major public school districts in the Coachella Valley: Palm Springs, Desert Sands and Coachella Unified. However, Beaumont, Banning, and the high desert area are often included in their service range, and if their support were needed elsewhere, the organization would certainly respond.
