What an exciting time as our Governor signs the "Safe and Supportive Schools Act".  How monumental that some of the very things that WE feel passionate about are coming to fruition.

"No young person should be forced to choose between going to school or being safe. But today, far too many are put in that position,” said Sen. Dibble, who authored the bill in the Senate. “Many of those students courageously stepped forward to share the pain of their experiences and to ask us to do better. Many more continue to feel isolated, afraid and despairing. Today we are able to answer them, and thanks to the amazing work of those students, parents, educators and health care professionals, Minnesota schools will be safer, healthier environments for all kids."
