The 2013 Georgia GSA Youth Summit will take place February 23, 2012 at Agnes Scott College. Please submit your proposals for educational breakout sessions here. All proposals should support the mission statement of the Georgia Safe Schools Coalition (below), and should also present subject matter that would be relevant to LGBTQ and Ally youth. Some examples of past sessions are "A History of LGBTQ Pop Culture," "Advocacy in Georgia," "Queer and Transgender Students of Color," and "How to be a Successful Student Leader," but we are open to any other subjects that would be appropriate. The deadline for proposals is December 17th, and you will be notified if your proposal has been accepted by January 15 at the latest. If you have any questions about this form please e-mail Jonah Berkowitz at email@example.com
"The purpose of the Georgia Safe Schools Coalition (GSSC) is to eliminate LGBTQ oppression in Georgia schools. We educate and advocate on issues affecting lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer and questioning students and families. GSSC works to address the intersections among various systems of oppression (e.g., racism, ableism, classism, xenophobia, etc.), understanding that one cannot eradicate transprejudice and heterosexism without simultaneously working to end all forms of injustice. By serving as a resource for Georgia students, educators, and families, we strive to engender positive social growth among Georgia’s youth, and to foster a safe and affirming school climate for all."
