A Success at Safe Schools Advocacy Summit!

Last week wrapped up GLSEN’s Annual Safe Schools Advocacy Summit (SSAS).  On Saturday March 24th, a group of 40 GLSEN students, educators and staff traveled to Washington D.C. — while there, they participated in a variety of leadership workshops, teambuilding exercises and met with officials from more than 100 Congressional offices representing 32 states.

Jeremy Brown, a high school freshman from Binford, North Dakota who was among the students at SSAS eloquently describes his experience in this special message to GLSEN supporters.

We compiled some photos from the event over here. SSAS is possible each year because of the generous support--in all sizes--of supporters like you. Will you make a donation to GLSEN to help support our work?
