S.A.F.E. (Student Alliance for Equality), is a student club that works to improve school climate for all students, regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity/expression. All students, regardless of their sexual identity, are welcome to join us. The goal of S.A.F.E. is to reduce anti-gay harassment and discrimination by educating the school about homophobia and LGBTQ+ issues, and encouraging a greater degree of understanding. This will make lab a safer place for everyone. This club welcomes all students!
Students interested in literature read books on Lab's bookshelves, video themselves reviewing the book, and including a QR code of the review on the inside cover of the book for other students; along with this, they will provide service to the school by organizing the bookshelves so the student community knows where to find books of interest.
