LGBT Students Fight Trump With 100 Days of Kindness

Who were you kind to today?

Since the the election of Donald Trump, GLSEN has seen an increase in reports of harassment, bullying, and violence toward LGBT students. With LGBT students across the country voicing their anxiety about the new administration, GLSEN decided to launch a campaign to support students through Trump’s first 100 days in office. The campaign, called 100 Days of Kindness, encourages students to make a difference in their community by standing up for people Trump has mocked and posting messages of support on social media using the hashtag #KindnessInAction.

On the eve of the inauguration, GLSEN released a video to launch the campaign featuring members of GLSEN’s National Student Council with a message for the incoming President Trump: "The election may be over, but our stories are not."

In the final seconds of the video, the words, "Kindness is power. Kindness is unity," flash across the screen. With a president who mocked reporter Serge Kovaleski for his disability, repeatedly made offensive remarks about women, and vilified immigrants and Muslims, the call for everyday acts of kindness seems more necessary than ever.
