Youth Council and the Statewide Advocacy Council

Youth Leadership

GSA Network is led by youth because we believe that youth have the power to create solutions and lead the fight against homophobia and transphobia. Representatives from GSAs around California serve on the organization's Board of Directors, regional Youth Councils, and Statewide Advocacy Council.

Statewide Advocacy Council

Statewide Advocacy Council is a diverse group of youth leaders from across California that works with GSA Network to change state laws and policies that impact LGBTQ youth. Statewide Advocacy Council members help plan and shape GSA Network’s advocacy efforts and events, including GAYLA (GSA Advocacy & Youth Leadership Academy) and Queer Youth Advocacy Day. They also help develop and promote advocacy campaigns such as our Campaign for LGBT-Inclusive Curriculum and the implementation of the FAIR Education Act.

Youth Council

Youth Council members come from small towns and cities across California to represent the voices of youth activists and GSAs throughout the state. Youth Council members meet monthly to plan GSA Network's programs, plan and present at conferences, and lead trainings and events throughout the year.
