Start by learning the basics of Developing a Strategy, using a Strategy Chart, and Planning Events. Then read about tons of specific actions and events your GSA club can do. Print out these resources and discuss them at your next GSA meeting!
For any Action or Event, it is important to be prepared and have a well thought out and planned event. Use these resources to make sure your actions and events are as powerful as they can be!
An EVENT is an activity your GSA wants to do that is more than just a “meeting.” Events require planning and strategy. Events can be fun, social, supportive, educational, or serious. Check out Fun Things to Do or learn how to put on Peer Education Workshops. Or you may want to focus on improving your school climate by starting with Conducting a School Survey or Making Your School a Hate-Free Zone.
An ACTION, or Day of Action, is a large-scale event that is designed to make a visible impact on your school or community. Actions often require more preparation time and even more strategy than events. We encourage all GSAs to take part in several days of action every year, including LGBT History Month in October, Transgender Day of Remembrance in November, GLSEN’s Day of Silence in April, and Harvey Milk Day in May.
