GLSEN and students across the county, often as members of Gay-Straight Alliances (GSAs) or similar student clubs, will celebrate Ally Week on October 15-19 in schools and communities nationwide.
Ally Week is a week for students to organize events that serve to identify, support and celebrate Allies against anti-LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender) language, bullying and harassment in America's schools. Students plan events appropriate to their school community.
Ally Week is dedicated to identifying, supporting and celebrating Allies against anti-LGBT bullying and harassment. And how do you find Allies? You TAKE ACTION!
Here are a few ways you can participate in Ally Week. From speedy pledges to longer organizing activities, this list provides ways that everyone can contribute. Find one that works for you.

GLSEN created this resource for new and already-established Gay-Straight Alliances (GSAs) or similar clubs. There are eight separate guides that will take you through the process of establishing or re-establishing your group, identifying your mission and goals, and assessing your school's climate.
