• DE Care 4 Trans Queer Youth: John C. Carney Jr.
    The wave of anti-trans and anti-queer legislation both directly targets TQ youth and strengthens efforts to rollback the rights of all historically marginalized and "othered" communities. We need to not only stop these anti-TQ bills, but transform our culture toward community and collective freedom. State and local organizers have been busy fighting these bills. We're calling on all state residents, community, and allies to #ShowUp4TransYouth and queer youth by demanding politicians end efforts of dividing the people and work toward CARE FOR TRANS AND QUEER YOUTH.  Is there an upcoming state or local action that we can uplift on this petition? Contact petition organizers by emailing devisingfreedom@gsanetwork.org to share upcoming actions, efforts, and updates related to TQ youth devising freedom. Our team will work to include relevant updates to state petitions. You can also check out efforts in other states here. GSA Network will continue to update state solidarity petitions as bills and resistance movements continue to evolve throughout the next few months. Be sure to share this petition with all TQ youth leaders and allies who are committed to interrupting these ongoing attacks.

  • Create Gender-Neutral Bathrooms for MMHS
    The unfortunate truth is that discrimination among transgender youth can stem from something as simple as what bathroom they use. Safety is one of the top priorities in public schools, and this is one issue involving safety that requires resolving!

  • We need a GSA at CTMS!
    A GSA (also called a Gay-Straight Alliance, a Queer-Straight Alliance, or a Genders and Sexualities Alliance) would provide a much-needed safe place for students to meet, support each other, talk about issues related to sexual orientation and gender identity, and work to create positive change on campus. Under the Federal Equal Access Act (http://www.gsanetwork.org/federal-equal-access-act), any school that receives government funding and has at least one other non-curricular club is legally required to also allow a GSA. Legally, public schools with other clubs must let students start a GSA -- and must treat the GSA like any other student club! Schools can't make up rules that only apply to the GSA and nobody else. GSAs have been proven to make schools safer for all students. Allow us to start a GSA so that ALL students can succeed.

  • We need a GSA at Burnet High School
    My daughter and many other students have been excluded and made to feel shame for her sexual orientation at Burnet CISD.

  • Support the GSA at STEMCivics!
    Joining and supporting our GSA is important because the LGBTQ+ community needs members and allies who will come forward to support the community and make them feel safe no matter what.

  • Make LGBT history part of High School curriculum.
    Many children are questioning their sexuality by the time they get to high school. Once they come out, they are sometimes unable to have a role model because everyone around them is straight. If we were to teach these things to them while they are in school, they can learn about their history, culture, and how others fought for their representation or lack thereof now.

  • We need a GSA at St. Mary's!
    LGBTQ+ youth at our school are afraid of being themselves because of intolerable bullying and homophobia that exists at St. Mary's. We must stand up to the pushback of the Archdiocese and become a place of love, comfort, and acceptance for all students regardless of gender, sexuality, race, or anything at all. A Genders & Sexualities Alliance club, or GSA, would provide a much-needed safe place for students to meet, support each other, talk about issues related to sexual orientation and gender identity, and work to create positive change on campus. Under the Federal Equal Access Act (http://www.gsanetwork.org/federal-equal-access-act), any school that receives government funding and has at least one other non-curricular club is legally required to also allow a GSA. Legally, public schools with other clubs must let students start a GSA -- and must treat the GSA like any other student club! As a private institution, we should go above and beyond in providing all people with their rights and freedoms, not be below public education's Constitutional standards. GSAs have been proven to make schools safer for all students. Allow us to start a GSA so that ALL students can succeed.

  • UNITY
    It is important because LGBT and especially Black LGBT people are not treated equally in our world. We want to continue to make positive changes in our school. People require counseling and more conversations around diversity, discrimination and LGBT rights should happen within our school.

  • We need a GSA at Shamokin Area High School!
    At Shamokin, members of the LGBT+ community are constantly put down and slammed. There isn't really a safe space, even in places I thought there were. I'm lucky to have a good group of friends, but it doesn't stop people from making hateful comments. And I know it happens to the people who have even less support than I do. Our school NEEDS this. A Genders & Sexualities Alliance club, or GSA, would provide a much-needed safe place for students to meet, support each other, talk about issues related to sexual orientation and gender identity, and work to create positive change on campus.

  • We need a GSA at Coldwater High School!
    Coldwater is a time capsule into the mid 70s, and I want to help change that and bring students to the 21st century and make our school a safer place. I was in a GSA in my old school and with it there was a place for me to be free of all my worries and a place for me to help others now I don't have that freedom and place that I can help others.
