Chapter Stories: GLSEN Connecticut

April 6th – New Haven, CT

GLSEN CT 1GLSEN Connecticut held their 2nd Annual Safe School Summit. During this conference the Chapter's Jump-Start and SOCO teams took a leadership role in facilitating workshops around student organizing and intersectionality, respectively. Ricardo, the chapter’s community liaison from the national office, was in attendance to facilitate a workshop for local educators aimed at providing adequate support to students of color that also identify as LGBT. One of the most powerful parts of the summit was a moment where high school seniors from the Student Organizing Team were able to take the stage during open mic and talk about the impact GLSEN Connecticut has had on their lives.
