GSA Network has paused our in-person youth leadership training and events this year to keep our community healthy and united. Virtual GSAs In Action is a digital space where we feature virtual youth leadership events, online group conversations, and training in digital organizing. Sign up to get weekly e-news and keep in touch.
Virtual GSAs In Action: Digital Organizing Toolkit
Download our Virtual GSAs In Action: Digital Organizing Toolkit–-a resource inspired by, and designed for, trans and queer youth activists, GSA club advisors and educators, and grassroots organizations across the country to continue organizing virtually.
Trans and queer young people of color want to build community in this moment. They are searching for places that affirm their identities and experiences, uplift their spirit, and promote self and community care. The Virtual GSAs In Action Toolkit was created to support them to start a Community GSA, take their existing school-based GSA clubs online, create new clubs, and above all, build virtual spaces that can restore our community.
Many clubs continue to utilize virtual or hybrid spaces for increased accessibility and reach moving forward, so check out our toolkit for tips and ideas to grow your GSA base on and offline!
