Amplify Your Voice campaign
No one should be bullied or called names simply because of who they are, these authors say. Yet millions of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) youth are made to feel like they don’t fit in every day, and some even feel unsafe. Teachers and school staff can make a difference every day by stopping the name-calling and making sure school is a safe learning environment for all students. This resource kit offers information to help educators, parents, and youth amplify their voices in support of equality for everyone. It includes tips and resources for teachers on standing up to anti-LGBT bullying, for school officials on making their school district LGBT-inclusive, for parents on supporting their LGBT children, for supporting transgender students and teens, for making sports LGBT-inclusive, and for coping with teen suicide.
