Know Your Rights: A Conversation with Mary Beth Tinker

Greta. Mari. Malala. Desmond. Isra. Emma. We are standing on the precipice of great social change—and young voices are more powerful than ever. In this video, our all-star team of teen advocates talk about how you can advocate for change and speak out, even in school!

Teen advocates Amina, Alan, Selma, and Weston will also be joined by special guest, Mary Beth Tinker, whose fight for free speech carried her all the way to the Supreme Court when she was a teenager!

This workshop is brought to you by The Neighborhood: A Virtual Hub for LGBTQ+ Families, a robust calendar and library of live events, virtual meetups, and age-appropriate activities to get you and your family through this challenging time. Click here to learn more about The Neighborhood.

Family Equality extends a special “Thank You” to all the teen advocates who participated in this workshop and to Mary Beth Tinker for sharing her wisdom and expertise with our community!
