ONAP Staff: It Gets Better

Yesterday several White House staff posted a blog and video as part of the ‘It Gets Better‘ project. ‘It Gets Better’ is a national campaign targeting LGBT youth that started in the wake of several high profile suicides. The campaign encourages LGBT youth who may be the subject of discrimination, scorn or ostracization to look beyond their current circumstances and realize that that a bright future lies ahead.  ONAP Director Jeffrey Crowley and I both participated in the video.

    Thanks for posting the anti-bully resources. As a young student who was bullied & harrased by the college bully, I wish i had these resources when in college!
    Hopefully, today’s youth will be able to get some help to negate the effect of bullying!
