About Us

The National Education Association Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer+ Caucus was founded in the 1980's by a handful of NEA Members seeking to provide a means of professional support for gay and lesbian colleagues.

The NEA-LGBTQ+ Caucus works to provide educators, education support professionals, and students, with safe schools free of anti-LGBTQ+ bias and intolerance, and to provide sound education programs for all students.

Our Mission:

The NEA-LGBTQ+ Caucus, in order to eliminate institutional discrimination, homophobia, and transphobia, monitors and participates in the development of NEA policies and activities, provides resources and fosters better communication among educators, students, and communities.


This website is designed to provide information and resources to the over 3 million members of the NEA who work each day to facilitate relevance and rigor to America's Public Schools.
