Rainbow Kids & Families

Dr. Malati Harris and Dr. Derrick Hurst will discuss the founding of Rainbow Kids & Families and its role in the community.

Rainbow Kids & Families is an elementary school student & family led organization striving to help LGBTQIA+ students and families feel safe, welcome, and supported in Douglas County and surrounding schools. They work with RKF Champions in the schools to help share LGBTQIA+ curriculum with educators and sponsor social and educational events for kids and families. This fall they will host a workshop with the ACLU of Kansas on protecting LGBTQIA+ students’ rights at school. They are also developing support groups for kids and families in partnership with the STA Care Center and will be holding crafting and other fun events throughout the year.
