Making a difference for LGBTQ+ youth in WA state

To the editor:

Hello, I hope this email finds you well. I know amidst the pandemic, we all have a lot going on. We at GLSEN know that the LGBTQ+ youth of Washington State need our support!

Right now, we are working on fundraising for 120 Rainbow Libraries throughout the state of Washington. Although school may not be in its traditional state today, we know there will be a "return to normal" eventually, and when students do return to the classroom and their schools, we want our students to see themselves represented in the books they read at their school's library.

Students, especially those that identify as LGBTQ+, have faced adversity from the pandemic that their cis and heteronormative peers did not experience, from bullying and harassment to being closeted at home to avoid abuse, or being kicked out of their house for just being who they are.

Research shows that students are more likely to be engaged and be present for school when they see themselves integrated in the curriculum and throughout their school, such as books in the library. Your support could be the difference in making a LGBTQ+ student thrive at school and see their place of learning as their safe space, somewhere they feel included and seen.

We need YOUR support in making this happen. To learn more about the Rainbow Library, [go to www.rainbowlibrary.org/washington]. To support our endeavors in contributing books to 120 schools in Washington State, [go to https://bit.ly/35nuYeD].

We know these books and the presence of a Rainbow Library at school WILL make a difference in the lives of the LGBTQ+ youth of Washington state. Thank you for your time and willingness to donate; it is much appreciated.

If you are unable to donate, we understand, any type of support such as sharing this letter and/or helping us promote our project is appreciated as well! Please let us know how we can work together!



Kindly,

Kaiden Bl├╝
Treasurer & Finance Chair / GLSEN Washington State
