Bullying LGBTQ students

Please read the article below to learn about the work that the Gay,
Lesbian and Straight Education Network (GLSEN) is doing to promote the
Safe Schools Improvement Act, created "to promote school safety and
improve student achievement for all students, through legislation that
will comprehensively address the issues of bullying and harassment".

"Sirdeaner Walker Testifies Before House Subcommittees in Support of
Safe Schools Improvement Act"

While bullying is often seen as separate from sexual harassment,
gender-based and orientation-based harassment come in many different
forms. The Coalition for Gender Equity in Schools aligns itself with
this exciting and necessary work.

Please show your support of the Safe Schools Improvement Act by signing
the online petition at the beginning of the article.
