At GLSEN, we want every student, in every school, to be valued and treated with respect, regardless of their sexual orientation, gender identity or gender expression. Now in our 25th year, we believe that all students deserve a safe and affirming school environment and work to ensure that lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) students are free from bullying and harassment. We accomplish our goals by working in hallways across the country -- from schools and district offices to Congress and the Department of Education -- to improve school climate and champion LGBT issues in K-12 education.

GLSEN provides unmatched research, like its National School Climate Survey, and has delivered a Safe Space Kit to every middle and high school in the country. Its national days of action, GLSEN’s Day of Silence, GLSEN’s No Name-Calling Week and GLSEN’s Ally Week, engage tens of thousands across the world.
