As you know, The San Francisco Giants have become the FIRST MLB team to create an "It Gets Better" video in support of our youth. The "It Gets Better Project" was created to provide hope for the future to Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgendered (LGBT) youth . These LGBT youth are bullied each and every day. Many of them consider or even follow through with taking their own lives. They cannot imagine it getting any "better". According to statistics: Nine out of 10 gay teenagers experience bullying and harassment at school, and gay teens are four times likelier to attempt suicide.
It's time to stand up for these youth!!!! I BELIEVE in the POWER that The Oakland Athletics have to make a difference in the lives of our youth!!!! Please Join me in asking our team to make an "It Gets Better" video.
