The recent violence and increase in bullying has most of us outraged. Safety for our kids has to be our number one priority. It shouldn't matter who is being bullied. It's got to stop! This is just a first step.
Last week, a freshman at Rutgers University killed himself after his roommate secretly recorded him with another male student, then broadcast the video online. It's just one of a number of teen suicides in recent weeks following cruel anti-gay bullying and harassment at school. Some of the kids were as young as 13.
Human Rights Campaign is calling on the Secretary of Education to keep students safe by adding sexual orientation and gender identity to school anti-bullying programs across the country. I just added my name to their letter -- will you join me?
