GLSEN Hudson Valley works to ensure safe schools for ALL students regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity/expression.
Here's what educators, parents and students have to say about GLSEN Hudson Valley
“The Hudson Valley Chapter of GLSEN has been wonderfully helpful in providing valuable resources and materials to teachers and administrators that align with the new Dignity for All Student Act, recently passed by New York State. These resources and materials have provided educators with vital information for assisting students and families in preventing bullying-like behaviors within the school community. GLSEN has also assisted schools in providing important parent education programs through our PTAs.”
Dr. Marilyn Terranova, Superintendent, Eastchester School District Past President of NY State Council of School Superintendents
"I am grateful for GLSEN Hudson Valley because it advocates for those whom many would rather not acknowledge or accept. As an Elementary educator, I am always looking for tools to improve the educational experience of all my students. GLSEN provides some of the best resources, with its new Ready, Set, Respect curriculum being one of them. I'm continually impressed with their commitment to educate and encourage LGBT students and their allies to make schools safer places forall students."

"A very special thank you to GLSEN Hudson Valley. Your commitment to ensure that every student is given the opportunity to go to school in a safe environment amazes me! The research and resources you provide have made it easy for me to go to my son's school and say 'this is the type of bullying I'm talking about.’ I am confident to talk about these issues because of the dependable work GLSEN does. You are a light in the lives of so many people. You make our world a better place.”
