#GSADay4RJ: GSA Day for Racial Justice

GSA Day for Racial Justice (#GSADay4RJ) is an annual day of action to mobilize for racial justice & celebrate multiple identities that you hold as LGBTQ+ youth. It is hosted by the National Youth Council.

GSA Day for Racial Justice is on Friday, February 25th, 2022!

Our theme this year for #GSADay4RJ is Creating Opportunities Through Oppressive Systems and we call on GSAs and allies to discuss, envision and advocate for opportunities for trans and queer youth to thrive and break out of systems of oppression.

Take Action

1. Create a media piece (paintings, videos, poems, songs etc.) around the theme and question: How can we create opportunities centered around unity, community building and advocating for our equal rights? What does new opportunities for trans and queer youth of color look like to you? How would it feel?

2. Submit your art pieces (along with your name and pronouns) and questions for our Instagram Live Q&A to nationalyc@gsanetwork.org by Friday, February 18th! Art pieces will be showcased on our social media and website for #GSADay4RJ!

3. Join our Instagram Live Q&A @gsanetwork on Friday, February 25th at 4:00-5:30pm PT/7:00-8:30pm ET where we will have an open dialogue between our National Youth Council members and a state representative to discuss how to receive support and create community.  Join the conversation and share your thoughts!

4. Encourage LGBTQ+ young people and allies in your school and community to get involved! Post about #GSADay4RJ on social media and discuss how you and your GSA can participate together.

5. Follow GSA Network on InstagramTwitterand Facebook for updates!
