(I'm sharing what I received. I'm registered with GLSEN as a teacher/activist. They do great things for children. But only when we are all involved.)Dear Erica, Since the election, we have seen an increase in reported instances of harassment, bullying, and violence towards LGBTQ students in schools. With the new administration now in office, there’s growing anxiety among LGBTQ students, and those of other marginalized groups, about what they might face. We have to let the most vulnerable students know that we have their backs. All of us! To this end, GLSEN is launching 100 Days of Kindness – a national campaign inviting our community to post messages of support to LGBTQ students on social media by sharing moments of #KindnessInAction. Each message shared will form a brick in a virtual wall of kindness at glsen.org/100days. Here what we need you to do right now:- Send a message of support to LGBTQ students on social media by sharing a time when you saw kindness in action at your school, past or present. You can include your favorite school photo, take a current selfie, or record a short video. Just use the hashtag #KindnessInAction in your post so we can include you in the wall of kindness. - Encourage your friends and family to use the hashtag #KindnessInAction and do the same! Whether an educator using our correct pronouns or the student who invited us to their lunch table, we’ve all experienced kindness – and it’s more important than ever that we lift up these moments of kindness for LGBTQ youth. Together, Eliza Byard, Ph.D.Executive Director, GLSEN http://www.glsen.org/article/celebrate-100-days-kindness-glsen
