The cast of the award-winning ABC sitcom “Modern Family” have recorded a PSA to promote GLSEN’s Safe Space campaign.
The Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network (GLSEN) wants every school to create a “safe-space,” a designated classroom or place where LGBTs and all bullied youth can go to learn free from harassment, and where they can get help to combat bullying.
Watch the Modern Family video below explaining the Safe Space campaign:
In order to support adults in setting up safe spaces, GLSEN has created the Safe Space Kit. More information can be found at http://www.SafeSpaceKit.com.
Facebook, in conjunction with Time Warner, GLSEN, CNN and many more organizations, also recently released a social application that allows users to pledge they will stand up to bullying. The application also provides resources for bullying victims and adults who want to help those they feel might be being bullied. Click here to learn more.
