Stand Up Awareness Week 2020 will take place from November 16th-20th.
Stand Up Awareness Week is a time for second-level schools, youth services, and Youthreach Centres in Ireland to join us and take a stand against homophobic, biphobic and transphobic bullying. This week is an opportunity for schools to look at how they can make them safe and supportive places for LGBTI+ students. It is unacceptable that one in five young LGBTI+ people face bullying, and that 73% of young LGBTI+ students feel unsafe at school. At BeLonG To, we are working hard to educate and train the entire school community around supporting LGBTI+ young people.
