GLSEN's ninth annual Respect Awards — New York are now less than a week away. This event is an opportunity to honor extraordinary allies in our safe schools movement - as well as those who serve as strong role models for our nation's youth. In advance of this year's awards, Senator Kirsten Gillibrand recorded a special message about the critical need to create safe schools for LGBT students, and of course about GLSEN's groundbreaking work in that area. Take a look.
