One Step Closer to Federal Action

Big news! Senator Tom Harkin (D-IA) recently introduced the Strengthening America's Schools Act of 2013. This comprehensive piece of legislation would not only reauthorize, but also update the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) so schools will be safer, more supportive and inclusive for LGBT students.

The legislation specifically incorporates provisions that GLSEN has been fighting for more than a decade to achieve, including the Safe Schools Improvement Act (SSIA) and the Student Non-Discrimination Act (SNDA). Take a moment to learn more about this important bill and GLSEN’s policy work in our nation’s capital.
