Every day GLSEN works to ensure that LGBTQ students are able to learn and grow in a school environment free from bullying and harassment. Together, we can transform our nation's K-12 schools into the safe and affirming environment all youth deserve. #RISEUP4LGBTQ
100% of the donations go directly to GLSEN.
As GLSEN was founded by a group of teachers in 1990, we knew that educators play key roles in creating affirming learning environments for LGBTQ youth. But as well as activating supportive educators, we believe in centering and uplifting student-led movements, which have powered initiatives like the Day of Silence, Ally Week, and more.
GLSEN'S FOUR SUPPORTS
- Develop supportive educators (who are crucial to creating LGBTQ-inclusive classroom environments)
- Comprehensive policies (to ensure LGBTQ students can learn and thrive in safe, inclusive accepting schools)
- Inclusive curriculum (which not only offers support to LGBTQ students but raises the awareness of all students)
- Support student GSAs (Gender & Sexuality Alliances) (student leaders are integral to creating community and pushing for change)
