Prism is a coalition of corps members, TFA alumni, non-TFA educators, civic and religious leaders, youth advocates and policymakers, and community members, all collaborating to share strategies and resources to support LGBTQ+ students and all students. 

Teach For America’s National Prism Alliances (formally TFA’s LGBTQ+ Community Initiative) launched Prism in 2014 with the purpose of creating brave spaces for LGBTQ+ teachers and ultimately students in every region. The network operates nationally and as local initiatives in more than two-dozen Teach For America regions. Members meet up quarterly for ongoing learning and professional development on LGBTQ+ leadership and transgender and non-binary advocacy.
