The 11th annual GLSEN/Boston Conference: "Creating Safety-Teaching Respect" will be held on Saturday, March 24, 2001 at Tufts University in Medford, MA. This year we expect over 650 students, teachers, counselors, administrators, parents and other individuals committed to improving the climate in our schools for GLBTQ youth.
