THRIVE is an advocacy group dedicated to promoting school-level policies intended to support and safeguard the rights of LGBTQ+ people in Kansas. We are focused on creating and implementing emancipatory policy through collaboration with school districts and all of the stakeholders, including administrators, teachers, parents, and students.

The members who make up THRIVE’s group of leaders are keenly aware that we are engaging in work that is already ongoing for other, more experienced advocacy groups, which have existed for many, many years. We have partnered with the following existing organizations to bring their experience and knowledge to our mission – to impact school-level policies in Kansas.

Huge thanks to our partners for their support:
