Dr. Jill Biden, the second lady of the United States, will open Parents, Families and Friends of Lesbians and Gays' (PFLAG) annual National Convention on Friday.

According to the White House, Biden, a lifelong educator, will discuss “the Obama-Biden Administration's commitment to ensuring that every student has a safe school.”

Biden will address the group at 1:30PM at the 4-day event, which takes place at the Westin Alexandria hotel in Washington, D.C.

“As a teacher and a mom, I know that acceptance and support at home can lead to positive and healthy outcomes in every important area of life, including education, mental health and physical health,” Biden said in a statement. “When parents and educators work together as a team, children succeed and thrive, and I commend PFLAG for the important role they play in the lives of our students.”

“We look forward to welcoming Dr. Biden and hearing her speak out as an ally about the important role that families and family acceptance play in providing a great education and a supportive community to our youth and how, when partnered with educators, friends, allies, and LGBT people themselves, families are an unstoppable force for change,” said PFLAG National Executive Director Jody Huckaby.
