GLSEN's No Name-Calling Week Brings Message of Respect to Thousands of Schools This Week

Over the past six months, our country has had profoundly painful reminders of the power of name-calling, labeling and vitriol.

But just in time is GLSEN's
No Name-Calling Week, which begins today. Each year, student entries in the Creative Expression contest, and other forms of positive action, provide inspiring and touching examples of the resilience and determination of young people who want to make a change in the world.

As an LGBT-inclusive program conducted in partnership with leading national education associations, No Name-Calling Week prompts young students to reflect on the impact of name-calling of all kinds and respond in support of the universal message of respect. It also provides schools with the tools needed to launch an ongoing dialogue on ways to eliminate bullying and harassment.

and accompanying events, click here.

This week long event is one of GLSEN’s most acclaimed programs, reaching tens of thousands of students each year in the critical effort to end bullying and promote respect for all in K-12 schools nationwide. Your support is a major reason why this program continues to grow year after year.

I encourage you to follow the event’s progress and impact on students and the media throughout the week by visiting the No Name-Calling Week website and reading its accompanying blog.

Thank you again for all you do to help GLSEN stand with students of all ages who are committed to being part of a better future for everyone, regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity.

All my best,

Eliza Byard
Executive Director

P.S. This year, No Name-Calling Week is perfectly positioned to make an especially deep impact on students. Our partnerships are impressive and continue to grow, the reach of this event is remarkable, and the students it affects are adorable and vulnerable. I hope you will join me in this sentiment by showing your support for GLSEN’s No Name-Calling Week.
