Anti-LGBT Bullying

I've been appalled by recent news of suicides among young people who have been bullied because they are lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender or because others perceive them to be LGBT.  It's a tragedy, and we need to do everything we can to protect our kids.

Students are often bullied or harassed without mercy because of their sexual orientation or gender identity – or simply because of who their tormentors think they are.  All students deserve to attend safe and welcoming schools.  Students can not learn when they feel unsafe.

Our local school districts need to take immediate steps to protect all students and make sure they have a safe learning environment.

Tip of the day:  WRITE A LETTER TO YOUR LOCAL NEWSPAPER EDITOR AND HELP STOP THE BULLYING!
