Happy Sunday to you all! Ok so remember last week when I shouted out Mr. Darren Young on publically expressing his homosexuality? Well because of his story, I was able to find out that the WWE has done some major work in the support of the LGBT community!
So here is what they are doing: They have this program entiled “Be a Star” (Show Tolerance and Respect).
Be a Star Mission Statement:
“The mission of Be a STAR is to ensure a positive and equitable social environment for everyone regardless of age, race, religion or sexual orientation through grassroots efforts beginning with education and awareness. Be a STAR promotes positive methods of social interaction and encourages people to treat others as equals and with respect because everyone is a star in their own right.”
Currently, Be a STAR has 58 alliance members, including National Education Association Health Information Network (NEA HIN), GLAAD, STOMP Out Bullying, The Ad Council and the United Federation of Teachers all partnering together to take action against bullying.
Talk about the stand we needed to take! I am so thankful for each of these organizations and their actions! I cant wait to get more involved with these type of affiliations myself!
Peace and Blessings everyone!
