GSA Day for Gender Justice (#GSADay4GJ) is a national day of action for GSA clubs, LGBTQ+ youth, and allies to center trans, nonbinary, and gender diverse people and mobilize for their liberation.
The National TRUTH Council leads #GSADay4GJ through creative storytelling and media projects.
In 2018, the team wrote and published their Nine-Point Platform for liberation, outlining the themes of upcoming annual #GSADay4GJ campaigns.
#GSADay4GJ is on Friday, November 11, 2022!
This year, TRUTH is calling on GSAs to mobilize around the fourth point of the platform:
We Call for an End of the Cisgender Heterosexual Patriarchy.
We recognize that the current state of the world centralizes the stories of white, cisgender, heterosexual men. We call for the end of a social structure that separates or determines the value of people on gender expectations from historical Europe. We demand that queer and/or TGNC people no longer be oppressed by these frameworks, institutions, and their enablers.
Calls to Action!
1. Connect with us on Social Media
Connect with us @gsanetwork on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter and our TRUTH programs on Facebook, Instagram,Twitter, and TikTok @ourtranstruth!
2. Create art pieces

3. Register for our General Assembly on Nov. 11!
