Cas Martin fosters safe spaces for LGBTQ+ students
Last summer, School of Public Policy graduate student Cas Martin interned at The Safe Schools Program for LGBTQ+ Students, a joint initiative of the Massachusetts Department of Elementary & Secondary Education and the Massachusetts Commission on LGBTQ+ Youth, where he worked on projects to make Massachusetts public schools more inclusive. “I’m a proud queer/trans person passionate about education and social change,” Martin said. “I’m studying public policy to ensure that all LGBTQ+ youth of all backgrounds have access to safe, supportive, and inclusive schools.” Martin’s internship was part of his fellowship with the Civic Action Project, which supports emerging leaders in public service.
