Goals/Objectives: To enhance prejudice reduction and support through education, group discussion, film, and peer counseling. In addition, RFD works towards increasing respect and acceptance as a means to encourage all stakeholders to embrace our diverse community. RFD members come from all religions, all colors and are of different ethnic backgrounds. They are straight, gay, bisexual, lesbian, transsexual and questioning. All are committed to making Mainland High School inclusive and welcoming for all. RFD will work to create a safe environment at Mainland for students and staff to support each other and learn about racial and religious prejudice, homophobia, transphobia, and other oppressions; educate the Mainland community regarding these issues, and fight discrimination, harassment, and violence in schools and in the community.
RFD has also worked with other groups throughout the country in promoting the National Day of Silence at Mainland, which is a day of action in which students across the country take some form of a vow of silence to call attention to the silencing effect of anti-LGBT bullying and harassment in schools. Please join our important club. We need your help to make a difference. Leadership positions are available.
