“It is my pleasure every year to support GLSEN,” Roberts told PEOPLE in October 2016.In October 2018, she offered fans the opportunity to go on a shopping spree with her on Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills as part of a campaign supporting GLSEN.Roberts has also been vocal about her work with initiatives such as the Global Girls Alliance, which works to empower young women to achieve their potential. She has encouraged her fans to donate to that organization as well.
