For fans of Clay Aiken, it was wonderful to see him and listen to the important message he passed on to us.
The ninth annual Respect Awards -New Yorkwere unforgettable. We honored Marguerite Kondracke, Janet Sammons, James Hubert Blake High School’s “Allies 4 Equality,” and the National Basketball Association for their immense commitment to respect and equality.
Business leaders joined celebrity guests, educators, student advocates, corporate partners, donors and GLSEN staff to celebrate the gains made so far in making schools safer for all throughout the country and to continue promoting respect for difference.
GLSEN, the Gay, Lesbian & Straight Education Network, is the leading national education organization focused on ensuring safe schools for all students. Established in 1990, GLSEN envisions a world in which every child learns to respect and accept all people, regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity/expression. GLSEN seeks to develop school climates where difference is valued for the positive contribution it makes to creating a more vibrant and diverse community.
