All kids should have access to a Safe and Affirming school environment. Unfortunately, right now many don’t. LGBTQ youth are more than two times as likely as non-LGBTQ youth to say they have been verbally harassed, and twice as likely to say they have been physically assaulted, kicked or shoved at school. Worse yet, LGBTQ youth are more likely than non-LGBTQ youth to report that they do not have an adult they can talk to about personal problems.
We refuse to let a student's sexuality limit their opportunities for success.
If you agree, speak up by signing and sharing our pledge. Our goal is 10,000 signatures by the time school starts this fall. Show our students that you want them to feel safe at school.
