LGBTQ Youth of Color Leadership Conference

 

Register today for the second annual Fall Unity Summit on Friday, December 8th at UW-Milwaukee!

GSAFE hosts two day-long conferences every school year, one in the spring and one in the fall.  These conferences are open to middle school and high school students, as well as to GSA advisors and other school professionals who are supporting GSAs and other clubs working toward justice for all students.  These conferences provide an opportunity for students and school professionals across Wisconsin to network and obtain skills that they can take back to their schools.

To register, have each student and adult attending fill out our 2017 Youth Unity Summit Registration Form. Please note that registration closes on Monday, December 4th. Registration forms can be emailed to Sawyer or mailed to GSAFE at the address below.

Testimonials

“Some of the boys used the expression ‘No Homo’ when playing a game and I immediately talked to them about what that phrase means and how it is offensive. GSAFE’s training prepared me to intervene in that moment.”
