'Youth' Starts With 'You'

Here on Spirit Day during Ally Week, we present some resources to help protect LGBT youth from bullying and harassment:
  • Out, Safe & Respected - This kit from Lambda Legal is designed to help you know your rights at school and make sure they’re respected, and to give you concrete ideas about how you can make a difference in your school and community.

    You have the right to be who you are.

    You have the right to be out, safe and respected at school.

  • Bending The Mold - Whether you’re transgender or gender non-conforming, questioning, or an ally, this kit from Lambda Legal is designed to help you make your school a safer place.

    They’ve included ideas and information to help you advocate for change. There’s also an extensive list of resources to help you connect with the transgender community and find support.

  • Make It Better - This project, launched by the national GSA Network and endorsed by a zillion other groups, gives youth and adults the tools they need to combat anti-LGBT bullying and harassment and make schools safer for LGBT youth right now.
'Nuff said.
