Campus Pride College Leader Institute
Thursday, January 21, 2016
There is a long history of LGBTQ organizing by college leaders. From the chapters of the Gay Liberation Front in the early 1970s to Gay-Straight-Alliances in the 1980s, Safe Zone programs in the 1990s, and queer/trans coalitions today, LGBTQ college students have a primary role in this movement. Campus Pride, the nation’s leading LGBTQ college organization, provides tools, resources, and back-up to college students on the grassroots level making positive change on college campuses throughout the country. Join us for the Campus Pride College Leader Institute focusing on enhancing leadership and organizing skills of college leaders. Participants will learn organizing strategies, gain access to resources specific to higher education, and develop action plans for making change all within a framework of intersectional justice. Come for a day of leadership development, skill building, and strategic dialogue and a unique opportunity to build solidarity with other college organizers across the US.
