GLSEN Connecticut's Student Organizing Team
These student leaders have put their passion for safe schools advocacy into action!
The Student Organizing (Org.) Team is composed of bright, energetic, and dedicated Gr. 6-12 student leaders from all across the state who are committed to making their schools safer for ALL students, regardless of sexual orientation and gender identity/expression.
Our main goal is to educate students about LGBTQ issues in schools and empower them to create social change through advocacy and safe schools organizing. We principally do this by facilitating a series of student-led workshops at the True Colors Conference on Friday, March 21, and Saturday, March 22, 2014 and our chapter's Third Annual Safe Schools Summit on Saturday, April 12, 2014.
