Update: We now have wonderful lawyers that are working pro bono but we still need help reaching bail. His bail is $500,000 but we are going to a bondsman that is charging us a percentage. Please find it in your hearts to help us bring him home safely. Thank you very much.

Abel Cedeno was just another teen boy trying to get through his personal trials and tribulations and school. Bullied since the sixth grade, he still kept a smile on his face and loved to make people laugh. He was a funny, loving, and kind hearted teen boy who was bullied for being flamboyant and bisexual. Being who he was made him a target. Abel is every other teen boy not only in the LGBTQ community but in every community, that struggle to accept themselves in a world that isn’t very accepting of others being “different”. Every year our teens are committing suicide, SUICIDE!!, due to being tormented, tortured, spit on, name called, harassed, punched, shoved, and abused in every other way, for being what we have taught them to always be, THEMSELVES!

If he was on his way to commit suicide when he was on his way out that classroom, would anyone have cared? Would it even be in the media? Would the people outraged now even feel bad for him? Bullying is NEVER OK and schools should do more to prevent it and deal with it. Abel was often told to IGNORE the bullying and to GROW UP and be the BETTER PERSON. Ignoring the bullying is what got us in this situation.

We need help to get him a super good lawyer and to pay for legal fees and his commissary. If you can find it in your hearts and if you identify with him in any way PLEASE help us reach our goal. Abel is every teen that has always wanted the bullying to stop and has felt STUCK.  Help us help HIM. If we surpass our goal we will use these funds for an ANTI-BULLYING EVENT. Thank you #JusticeForAbel #StopBullying
