This campaign matters to me because I work with teenagers every day. I am a high school teacher of English and am also certified for special education. I see kids every day who are trying to navigate an almost impossible social situation. For many, just getting on the bus is a major milestone because they know they will be judged, ridiculed, laughed at and worse. Often this comes from kids the might consider their friends. I have a duty at one end of a large area and several students hang out there most days because they know it is safe. That may not sound like a big deal, and perhaps it isn't, but for the few regulars, it makes them feel a part of a group for 55 minutes a day.
