Ally Action really, truly saves lives. In the past 10 years I have volunteered and/or worked with the organization, I have seen and felt the immense impact the organization has had on the lives of the people it has touched. I have literally seen young people, adults and schools transformed by the workshops and trainings Ally Action offers. The most common piece of feedback from youth having participated in classroom workshops was that there is a huge sense of gratitude for having created a dialogue in the classroom about an issue young people deal with every day. Statements like "that's so gay" are still used in most schools today. They are an amazing resource for school communities struggling with anti-gay bullying and harassment.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...
begin to start reaching hundreds of schools in a way that has meaning and depth - just like how Ally Action approaches work in schools now.
