The Gay, Lesbian & Straight Education Network - Connecticut Chapter
"Findings from the GLSEN 2009 National School Climate Survey demonstrate that Connecticut schools were not safe for many lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) secondary school students. In addition, many LGBT students in Connecticut did not have access to important school resources, such as Gay-Straight Alliances, and were not protected by comprehensive bullying/harassment school policies." (GLSEN - Connecticut Chapter)
