Budgets are tight.
But the need is dramatic.
And the impact of my programs is powerful.
"I just went out to my friends and told them I'm not going to use the word 'faggot' or 'bitch' anymore."
- Palisades Charter High School Student
"I will remember the part when you said that people need to know more than one thing about a person to then know all about them. Your presentation will help me throughout my life."
- Brentwood 6th Grade Student
"It was amazing to have you come to Pali and speak to our students. I think you made a huge contribution to uplifting our campus culture.

I’m delighted to announce ten grants of $500.00 each to help bring me out to your school or library for a full day of either
SAFE SPACE: Ending Anti-Gay bullying in our Culture… and in YOUR School Assemblies
SMASHING STEREOTYPES In-Class Workshops
With one of these grants, it will cost only $500.00 for me to come to your school or library this Spring 2012 and help energize your community to end Anti-Gay - and all - bullying and smash the stereotypes that hold us back… as a culture and as individuals.
How to apply:
Have your GSA Advisor, school counselor, parent, librarian, or other adult point person contact me via email: iamleewind (at) gmail (dot) com.
Tell me (in their words or yours, in a couple of sentences) about your school, and why you feel my speaker visit would help make a difference in your community.
We’ll need to schedule the visit between January 16 and May 31, 2012.
If you’re not driving distance from Los Angeles, you’ll have to cover my travel and hotel, but that’s billed at cost.
And that’s it.
The first ten schools who need the financial help, apply for it, and schedule me, get these grants!
So see if you can make it happen for your school.
I’d love to come help you make things better, starting right now!
