Dear 40-Year-Old Me

Posted on April 19th, 2012 by Farrin in Youth Blog. No Comments

This is an amazing new video by the Illinois Safe Schools Alliance.  Take a moment to watch and reflect on your own life.  What do you want to tell yourself when you’re 40 years old?

The video features Alliance Youth Committee members and other youth involved with Illinois Safe Schools Alliance work.  Their hope is that this video inspires you to get involved in making schools better places for ALL youth, especially those that are lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender.  As the young people share personal, raw anecdotes about their lives, a universal theme emerges: change is both possible and empowering. The stories trace how young people have transformed through their involvement with the Alliance, from feeling marginalized to being an integral part of policy changes at both a district and statewide level.
