Ally Week (October 13-17, 2014)
A true Ally actively combats anti-LGBT bullying and harassment.
Visible Allies are priceless for LGBT students, especially if they’re dealing with anti-LGBT issues at school. Allies can sometimes stand up and support change in ways that LGBT-identified students can’t.
Being an Ally is about standing shoulder to shoulder with LGBT students against anti-LGBT language, bullying and harassment in our schools.
Supported by over 20 endorsers, Ally Week is five days in October for students to identify and connect with the people who lift them up and never let them down.
