LGBT Tech Signs Coalition Letter Calling for the U.S. Department of Education's Office for Civil Rights to Address the Discriminatory Harms of Student Activity Monitoring Software.

The letter calls on the Office for Civil Rights to issue a policy statement that clarifies the intersection of civil rights laws and student activity monitoring, condemns uses of student activity monitoring that run afoul of students’ civil rights and civil liberties, and states OCR’s intent to take enforcement action against violations that result in discrimination, especially against historically marginalized groups of students.

Policy Education

With a focus in the United States, LGBT Tech works at the national, state, and grassroots level on programs and policy informed by research.

Resources

Recognizing the need to better understand the role of technology in LGBTQ+ lives, LGBT Tech starts with research to create important resources for the LGBTQ+ community and allies.
