Student Leaders Creating Change (SLCC) is a student-led experience formed to make schools safer, more inclusive places. With the mission of decreasing bias incidents and encouraging participation through creative leadership, SLCC serves to instill courage and empower students to build communities that are accepting of all regardless of race, sexual orientation or expression, religion, national origin, gender, ability, age, size, and the full spectrum of human difference.
