Yara Shahidi To Be Honored For Social Activism At 2018 GLSEN Respect Awards

By Posted on 60 1 m read

Yara Shahidi will be recognized as a recipient of the Game Changer Award at the GLSEN Respect Awards for her advocacy for girls’ education later this year.

GLSEN is an education organization with a mission to create inclusive, safe spaces for young members of the LGBTQ community who are in grades K-12. In a statement, GLSEN’s Executive Director Eliza Byard wrote,

“We are thrilled to announce these incredible honorees at this important moment in GLSEN’s history. They represent a diverse group of changemakers supporting GLSEN’s mission to create safe and inclusive schools for all, and they are shaping the conversation on LGBTQ equality, gender issues, and a host of social movements. We look forward to celebrating their work and that of students and educators from across the country.”

The 18-year-old ‘Grown-ish’ and ‘Black-ish’ actress will also be recognized for her work with the Young Women’s Leadership Network and Let Girls Learn, initiatives that ensure teen girls have access to education. “Giving back is not just something you do as an adult,” Yara says.

Amongst several others honorees, the group will also honor ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ star Ellen Pompeo for her advocacy for LGBTQ causes and pay equity in Hollywood.
