Proud Out Loud!
On January 20th, GLSEN LA hosted it's first ever Students of Color Organizing (SOCO) event, Proud Out Loud! This event brought in students from all over Los Angeles County to network and develop ideas for projects they could do at their own schools.
It was a full day of events and activities for the students. We had special guests, GLSEN- Orange County and TransYouth Speak, provide wonderful presentations for the attendees.
Speaking to the students after the event, we knew we had provided them with some tools and resources to take back to their schools. More importantly, however, they were able to leave with a sense of community.
All and all it was a wonderful event and we look forward to (hopefully) expanding it next year!
