It Gets Better Project

The It Gets Better Project empowers young members of the LGBTQ+ community to say yes to their authentic selves. With a pledge against intolerance that's already 500,000 voices strong, the nonprofit uses the power of media to provide LGBTQ+ youth with the hope and support they need to thrive.

The Happy Hippie Foundation

The Happy Hippie Foundation rallies young people to stand up against the injustices that face LGBTQ+ youth today. By providing support services, education, and job opportunities, Happy Hippie helps the young LGBTQ+ community achieve positive outcomes in life - and ultimately change the world.

Whatever your gender, orientation, identity, Converse believes
everyone is free to be who they are.

All net proceeds from the 2017 Converse Pride Collection will go to the It Gets Better Project and The Happy Hippie Foundation, two organizations committed to empowering LGBTQ+ youth around the world.
