New York City's Hetrick Martin Institute home of The Harvey Milk School for LGBTQ students have joined forces with fashion giant Levi Strauss to raise 500,000 to support its services for LGBTQ youth.
The campaign — GiveThemHope has already raised nearly 100,000 and features current students and graduates of The Harvey Milk School in a new PSA.
Milk has become a safe haven for LGBTQ youth in New York City who were often victims of verbal and physical abuse in traditional school settings. The school boasts a nearly 90% graduation rate and provides an environment where students sexual orientation, gender identity and or expression isn't a road block to a solid education.
This is yet another example of Levi Strauss' unwavering commitment to LGBT issues. To learn more about the campaign and to donate visit the official website here.
