Help Make Schools Safer for LGBT Students
Nine out of 10 LGBT students experienced harassment at school in the past year. These students are more likely to feel unsafe and are less likely to graduate. That’s why the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network (GLSEN) is hoping to win a $250,000 grant from Pepsi’s Refresh Project to create “safe space kits” for 10,000 schools across the country. The kits are designed to help make schools safer for LGBT students by educating all students about differences and problem solving.
GLSEN launched the Safe Space Campaign last year – it takes $20 per school to help spread the word. You can even donate directly to GLSEN online.
