Science teacher Laura Braly wasn’t giving out safety pins from her room on Nov. 14 for no reason.

“It’s so that students will be able to identify me as teacher who is safe. Students won’t have to worry about whether or not they are safe in my presence,” Braly said.

Braly started this after the trend began on social media over the weekend, showing that wearing one means someone is “safe” to talk to about any problems or differences.

The safety pin trend has emerged in a time where many students may need support after feeling alienated or frightened after the results of the recent presidential election.

“My daughter and her wife contributed 2000 safety pins so that there would be one for every student in school if they wanted one,” Braly said.
