From DC to LA, GSAs support immigrant youth

GSA leaders, you kept your promise: thousands of you signed my petition to the President to free Yordy Cancino and all LGBT youth from ICE detention.

So yesterday, I kept mine: I delivered your signatures to the White House, Immigration and Customs Enforcement, and several members of Congress.

It's time to deliver for Yordy

Last week, I started a petition to release Yordy Cancino, a former GSA leader and undocumented youth, from ICE detention.

Next week, I’m delivering that petition to the President of the United States.

ICE has given Yordy excuse after excuse to delay his case and keep him in detention. We are mobilizing to deliver our petition to President Obama in DC and ICE in Los Angeles on Thursday, April 24th! To join the LA rally, go to the Facebook event.

A GSA leader needs you on this Day of Silence

Yordy Cancino, a queer undocumented youth, was a GSA president who organized events like GLSEN's Day of Silence at his LA high school. But on this Day of Silence, he is being held in ICE detention, not allowed to return to the home he worked so hard to make safe for all LGBTQ youth.

Building the Sisterhood: Learning Exchange 1

In January, Missouri GSA Network had the privilege of kicking off a series of learning exchanges between LGBTQ, racial justice, and educational justice youth organizations across the country. We traveled south on 55 to visit with an amazing organization, BreakOUT!, which fights the criminalization of LGBTQ youth of color in New Orleans.
