This year, we had an amazing mix of speakers, interactive workshops, and opportunities to network with educators and students from all over the state! The conference will include specific events centered around Queer and Trans People of Color, Trans/Gender Nonconforming youth, LGBTQ+ youth in sports, youth presentations, the Arts, and so much more!
Although the Holiday season is meant to be a time of celebration, for many people, it can be especially difficult. Many LGBTQ+ youth live in unsupportive environments, and the holidays can place additional stress on those individuals. Suicide and depression rates climb throughout the winter. If someone in your life is struggling with their mental health, there are resources available to them!
In honor of Black history month, February starts with BLM at school week. Educators and students use this week of action to advocate for racial justice in education. Even though this is a one week event, these actions must be done year round.
Get ready for next month's Youth Leadership Conference!
