What is GSA Day for Gender Justice?

GSA Day for Gender Justice is a day for GSA clubs, LGBTQ+ youth and allies to celebrate the extraordinary accomplishments and contributions of trans and gender nonconforming people, to honor those we've lost along the way, and to mobilize our communities to fight for gender justice.

Take Action!

Trans and GNC youth are invited to participate in #GSADay4GJ selfie campaign hosted by Trans Youth - Truth Project. More info coming soon.

What is an action? Actions are events that organizations, communities, individuals and GSAs do to educate, bring attention to and attempt to change culture and policy. There are different ways to take action and we at GSA Network hope that your GSA can employ one or more of the following:

  • Host a teach-in using our curriculum
  • Poster or chalk at your school or in your community
  • Hold a gender justice rally
  • Have a meeting with your school admin about bathroom equality right

National GSA Day for Racial Justice is an annual day of action to mobilize for racial justice and celebrate the multiple identities we hold as LGBTQ youth. This year, GSA Day for Racial Justice will honor Audre Lorde’s words, impact, and legacy, and take action across the country in support of the #BlackLivesMatter movement.

Keep the momentum going!

Change takes time, energy and resources, we will not be able to create the type of change we’d like to see in a month’s time. We must continue to celebrate, collaborate and organize on #blacklivesmatter throughout the year.
