asking for anti bullying speaker

Question:

I am running a GSA at my high school and would like speaker to speak to my school about anti bullying. I heard speakers last year in DC and have tried to contact them but have been unable to do so.

Answer:

Hi Lynn,

Thank you for submitting your letter to us. It is wonderful that you are a part of your school’s GSA! I can understand the frustration you have been experiencing with your attempts to have a speaker attend an event. At The Trevor Project, we have numerous education programs for both youths and adults, as well as well as a resource kit that you can request for your GSA (http://www.thetrevorproject.org/section/resources). If you would like to find different local organizations that can go out to your campus to give a talk, you can search what is in your area on these two sites:

I hope that you are able to get someone on campus to speak to your group. If you have any more questions, please feel free to ask.

Take care,

Trevor Staff
