Whether you’re into Dancing With the Stars, Jersey Shore, Glee, Modern Family, or Parks and Recreation, chances are one of your favorite celebrities is involved with the recently launched Amplify Your Voice campaign.

Working with the the American Federation of Teachers (AFT), the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD) launched Amplify Your Voice earlier this month to provide youth with tips on how to stand up against bullying, ways to stay safe on social media sites like Facebook, and information about teen suicide.

The GLAAD website provides an Amplify Your Voice Resource Kit that offers teachers, parents, and LGBT students and youths with anti-bullying literature, ideas for promoting transgender equality, and tips for using the Internet to speak out against discrimination and provide hope and encouragement for those who’re suffering from bullying.

Celebs like Chaz Bono, Vinny Guadagnino, Naya Rivera, Ariel Winter, and Amy Poehler starred in the campaign’s several PSAs. You can also see athletes like Shaquille O’Neal, couples like Tori Spelling and Dean McDermott, and hosts like Mario Lopez.

Want to learn more about Amplify Your Voice? Check out some of the PSAs and find out how you can get help – or help someone else? Visit the Amplify Your Voice Resource Kit today.
