Statewide Coalitions

GSA Network believes that coalitions are crucial to making long-term change. Coalitions have been key to our success in changing laws and school policies in California. We are proud to partner with other organizations dedicated to ensuring safe, high quality, and inclusive education.

Key Statewide Coalition Work

California Safe Schools Coalition

GSA Network helped found the California Safe Schools Coalition in 2001, and remains a current member today. The California Safe Schools Coalition is a statewide coalition of organizations and individuals dedicated to eliminating discrimination and harassment on the basis of actual or perceived sexual orientation and gender identity in California schools.

GSA Network has partnered with the California Safe Schools Coalition to conduct the Preventing School Harassment survey. Check out the research briefs based on our work.

Campaign for Quality Education

GSA Network is a member of the Campaign for Quality Education, which is a statewide coalition of grassroots, civil rights, policy and research organizations committed to educational equity for all communities in California’s public schools.

The LGBT Health and Human Services Network

The LGBT Health and Human Services Network is a statewide coalition of LGBT and allied organizations working to provide non-HIV health and human services to LGBT Californians and their families. The Network works to prioritize the health needs of the LGBT community in California and connect existing organizations with statewide funding sources that have not necessarily been directed toward LGBT communities in the past.
