What You Can Do
Scouting For All's National Campaign
Schools and Government


This includes the military, municipalities, schools, police and fire departments, PTA's, etc. We ask that you reexamine your relationship with the BSA in light of your own anti-discrimination policies. Insist that discrimination be prohibited by any group that uses your services and or facilities. We ask all school districts to think about the message that you would be giving our gay and straight students if you allowed organizations that discriminate against gay youth such as the Boy Scouts of America to use your school facilities and allow adult BSA leaders to recruit in your schools. Just think about the harmful message you would be giving our gay and straight youth.

Scouting For All asks school districts throughout the United States of America to support GSA clubs (Gay Straight Alliance Clubs) by granting permission for students to establish them in your school district high schools.

Gay Youth often experience deep feelings of rejection and loneliness and GSAs offer our GLBTQ youth support and our straight youth understanding and acceptance. Scouting For All has devoted our effort in the memory of Robin Reed and to all gay youth who have taken their lives because they felt rejected, like they didn't belong. Eagle Scout Steven Cozza started a GSA at the high school he attends, Petaluma High School in 2000. This was the same high school Robin Reed had attended. If Petaluma high School had had a GSA in 1995 the year Robin Reed took his own life, Robin may still be alive today! GSAs are saving lives! Lets embrace all of our youth by establishing GSAs in every high school in America! The power for healing change is in your hands. Together let's make it happen.

For information on how to start a GSA at your high school go to

The Scouting for All team, which includes our board of directors, regional and assistant regional directors and consultants are available upon request to provide you consultation and support.
