"Expect Respect" Internship and Gender-Inclusivity at Brooklyn Center

The “Expect Respect” Internship Group at Brooklyn Center High School provides students with a safe space to be themselves. In November 2018, an intern named Jesse* (name changed to protect privacy) approached Hannah, the Health Mentor at Brooklyn Center High School about something she experiences quite frequently at the school: discrimination in bathrooms based on their non-binary gender expression. Jesse was fed up with having girls tell her she is not a girl, and being told that she is in the wrong bathroom. With the help of Hannah and her Expect Respect Internship peers, Jesse put together a letter to the school with room for supportive signatures to give to administration. The letter highlighted that the school needs to be more inclusive, providing gender-inclusive bathrooms and gym changing spaces. The internship peers and Hannah are so incredibly proud of Jesse reaching her personal goals, and aligning her letter project with internship goals as well.
