Watch GLSEN Executive Director Eliza Byard's speech at our Respect Awards - New York gala on May 23 about creating not just safe schools but truly great schools for all students, regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity/expression.
Eliza shares the story of a former student, "Jessica," who rejected the idea that simply surviving school is good enough. All students "have a right to reach for more."
