About This Webinar

Identity-based bullying takes place in schools every day. It is bullying based on bias toward a person or group and targeting their identity (e.g., appearance, race, gender and gender identity, sexual orientation, religion, socioeconomic status, disability, etc.). Because identity-based bullying targets who the student is—a core part of their identity—it can be especially harmful. It impacts not only the targeted student, but others around them who identify in the same way and those who worry they'll be the next target. In this 2024 Share My Lesson Virtual Conference session, participants will learn about identity-based bullying and strategies to address it. Through a new video co-created by HRC (Human Rights Campaign) and ADL (Anti-Defamation League), “Centering Youth Voices: Addressing Identity-Based Bullying,” participants will hear and reflect on the powerful voices of young people ages 12 to 18 who share their experiences with identity-based bullying, the impact it has on them and their school community, and their ideas about what educators and schools can do about this harmful behavior. Participants will learn about and receive teaching activities to facilitate classroom conversations on this topic.
