The Equity and Social Justice Committee has created a series of virtual lesson resources that connect to our Rainbow Stories on the Road program. Rainbow Stories has traditionally offered LGBTQ2+ themed picture books and novels with options to meet the needs of all elementary grades (including French language titles). In addition to lending book kits, we offer workshops to highlight the importance of creating inclusive classrooms and to facilitate open discussions with staff.
