Abel Cedeno and the Bronx Zoo School

Body: 

Urban Assembly for Wildlife Conservation, nicknamed the Bronx Zoo School for its dangerous climate, has had three principals in five years and is currently at the center of FIERCE’s fight to stop violence and bullying against LGBTQ youth of color in the Bronx. 

We Will Not Be Erased

Body: 

As you've no doubt heard by now, the Trump administration has forbidden the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) from using the word "transgender" and a handful of other terms that are vital to our community. But what this administration doesn't seem to get is that we're not going anywhere.

We exist. We are here. We will not be erased, rescinded, forbidden, or forgotten.

World AIDS Day: Commemorate Loss, Celebrate Advances

Body: 

Today, on World AIDS Day, as we commemorate nearly four decades of loss and celebrate the advances we've made in prevention efforts, we must remember that HIV and AIDS continue to disproportionately affect young gay and bisexual men, particularly young men of color. 

Existing Outside the Gender Binary

Body: 

GSA Day for Gender Justice is an annual day of action for trans and gender nonconforming young people of color to bring a trans perspective to gender justice.

#GSADay4GJ: TQYouth Tell Us What Gender Justice Means To You

Body: 

GSA Day for Gender Justice, a youth-led national day of action, is taking place on November 17, 2017, giving trans and queer youth an opportunity to give their perspective on what gender justice means in our community.

#GSADay4GJ is a day for GSA clubs, LGBTQ+ youth and allies to celebrate the extraordinary contributions of trans and gender nonconforming (GNC) people, to honor those we've lost along the way, and to mobilize our communities to fight for gender justice.

Latinx History Month is Over, Keep Claiming Your Space

Body: 

Growing up in El Salvador, I never celebrated Latinx History Month. There was no need. Being Latinx in a Latin American country means that you belong. You are seen and you are part of the life of that country. Your validity is not questioned.

Being Latinx and an immigrant in the U.S., however, can sometimes make you feel like you don’t belong, particularly in our current political climate. That’s why it is crucial for us to claim spaces where the contributions of Latinxs leaders and our community as a whole can be recognized, acknowledged, and uplifted. Celebrating Latinx History gives us an opportunity to highlight the legacy of artists, scientists, activists and countless anonymous heros/sheros from our community that don’t appear in any U.S. history book.

DREAMERs Will Resist, So Will We

Body: 

Trans and queer youth won't let DREAMERs fight alone.

The White House has once again shown that it will continue to attack young people of color--this time, Dreamers who benefit from Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA)--just to score political points with white supremacist, nationalist, and conservative groups.

Uplifting Trans and Queer Youth Voices in the Midwest

Body: 

The movements for social justice and liberation have historically been led by young people on the ground, organizing to survive and thrive. As young organizers, we understand the need to push the movement forward through intersectional and accessible work. It’s vital to highlight and uplift the work that young organizers are doing within organizations like Kaleidoscope Youth Center and at conferences like GSA Network's National Gathering taking place on August 3-6, 2017 in Columbus, Ohio.
