Write Your Principal

Write a Letter, Make It Better and join our rad new campaign with The Make It Better Project!

Inspired by my friend Jennifer Walters, I’m encouraging people disheartened and distressed by the deaths of five young men who took their own lives in part because of anti-GLBTQ bullying in September to write letters to their high school principals. Will you join us? Write to your principal (even if you graduated 30 years ago!) and ask what the school administration is doing to stop bullying and support GLBTQ students and their allies. Let us know what you said; we'll let you know what they're saying. Send your correspondence to writeyourprincipal@gmail.com. We won't publish your full name without your explicit permission or clarification; otherwise, we'll use your first name and an initial.
