LOS ANGELES - The Los Angeles Dodgers released today their video contribution to the It Gets Better Project, an online campaign that seeks to curb bullying and remind lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) youth that they are supported throughout society. The Dodgers' contribution features several Dodger players and coaches including Don Mattingly, James Loney, Matt Guerrier, Jamey Carroll, A.J. Ellis, Rod Barajas and Hiroki Kuroda.
"The Dodgers have been outspoken advocates for equality and against all societal prejudices dating back to the days of Jackie Robinson," said Dodgers Senior Vice President, Public Affairs Howard Sunkin. "Our club wholeheartedly supports an end to bullying and violence against LGBT youth. There is zero tolerance for violence of any kind for any reason in our community."
The Dodgers' It Gets Better Project video can be viewed now at www.dodgers.com/dmn. It includes messaging in English, Spanish and Japanese.
The Dodgers join other MLB clubs in support of the It Gets Better Project. The It Gets Better Project helps prevent bullying of LGBT youth and teen suicide by providing support through encouraging video messages. Video submissions and more information on the It Gets Better Project can be found by visiting www.itgetsbetter.org.
