A visit from Jesse Tyler Ferguson

As our class prepared for a training and rehearsed scenes depicting homophobic bullying and gender bias, we had some special visitors from Hawkins-Mikita!  Hawkins-Mikita is a social innovation firm that helps their clients develop effective philanthropic and advocacy strategies for issues they care about.

One of their clients, actor Jesse Tyler Ferguson, is active in supporting LGBTQ civil rights,  has a passion for theater and is a compassionate advocate for youth affected by homophobia in schools.  He was intrigued by what he has heard about our program and spent time learning how we use theater to help teachers learn to create safety for LGBTQ students.

Our students were thrilled to meet Jesse and eagerly told him how the program impacts teachers and administrators.  They also shared how their participation in the class and in the program has changed their own lives.

It was a lot of fun and we were honored to have someone we all admire devote his time to us!

Show Your Love

Safety
Safety

Show your love this Valentine's Day, by encouraging friends to contribute to stop homophobic bullying.

LGBT students are twice as likely to endure bullying at school. Children of same-sex couples are also at risk for harassment and homophobic victimization. 

With them in mind, show your love this Valentine's Day by seeking additional support for our project.  

You can share information and the attached flyers through email and social media.  And of course, you can make a Valentines Day donation of your own right here!

Thank you for all your support in making schools safer for  ALL students.

Happy Valentines Day!

#GivingTuesday Team

A few weeks ago, we participated in #GivingTuesday and raised $15,000 to expand our project!

We are grateful to all 146 of you who donated during the campaign and promoted it throughout the day. We had a lot of help from our current students and their families, past students, teachers, board and staff members and friends.  We even had some celebrity support from cast members from some popular tv shows, Hairspray Live, Faking It, The Fosters and Pretty Little Liars!

We are getting very close to our goall!  Please share our project with anyone who wants help make schools safe for ALL students and help us expand the program in 2017.

With best wishes for happy holidays!
