Pro Bono Institute Highlights Recent Success

In the publication, The PBEye: Pro Bono As We See It, the Pro Bono Institute discusses the landmark agreement that was reached concerning a harassment lawsuit filed against the Anoka-Hennepin (Minnesota) School District and congratulates the Faegre Baker Daniels attorneys that worked to secure this victory.

As part of the agreement, the district rescinded its neutrality policy in favor of a requirement that teachers may "affirm the dignity and self-worth of students" regardless of race, sexual orientation, disabilities or other factors. The consent decree includes significant new protections designed to prevent harassment of students who are or perceived to be lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender (LGBT), and gender non-conforming, as well as those who have friends or parents who are LGBT.
