Here’s what people are saying:

“Kidpower Executive Director Irene van der Zande provided critical support for the hugely successful #Day1 Campaign, created by the Tyler Clementi Foundation to prevent bullying before it starts. We greatly appreciate Kidpower’s expertise in helping us create a #Day1 pledge that is strong, clear, and inclusive.”

~ Sean Kosofsky, Former Executive Director, Tyler Clementi Foundation

“Kidpower services are strategically aligned with the needs of our youth, who deserve self-protection skills – so they are more prepared to take charge of their safety in age-appropriate ways in the face of bullying, harassment, discrimination, and threats to their physical and emotional safety – and who also deserve safety leadership and advocacy skills they can use in their civic and community efforts as citizens, student leaders, clients, and consumers in legal, medical, legislative, educational, and other community contexts.”

~ Roz Keith, Executive Director Stand With Trans

“Every person who is likely to be the target of identity-based attack deserves access to this training. Kidpower skills are crucial for the emotional and physical safety of transgender and gender-diverse people, who face a higher rate of bullying, harassment, and abuse at all ages than their cisgender peers. As a workshop participant, l’ve seen firsthand that Kidpower is culturally competent, and effective.”

~ Gavin Grimm, ACLU National Board Member
