Ask me anything about GSA clubs!   Gay-Straight Alliance Network is a national youth leadership organization that works to create safer schools for all students through school-based Gay-Straight Alliance (GSA) clubs. http://www.gsanetwork.org

Support Yordy: https://www.youcaring.com/freeyordy. After months in Immigration and Customs Enforcement detention, GSA youth leader Yordy Cancino has been granted his credible fear request. He now just needs to raise $7500 for his bond, and he can return home. Hear his audio message from the detention center thanking you and everyone who supported him!

#FreeYordy LIVE: “Please support me. My son is feeling depressed. My son wants to come home. He wants to be with me and his communities. But ICE won’t let him come back to LA. I know the community is fighting to bring him back. Join us. Don’t let ICE take him away from us.” -California LGBTQ Dreamer Yordy Cancino’s mom, Griselda Cancino. http://bit.ly/freeyordy #LGBTQ #BringThemHome #Not1More deportation (at Bienestar Familia)

A GSA alum urgently needs your help!
Yordy Cancino is a leader who worked to transform his high school and his city of Los Angeles as the Gay-Straight Alliance (GSA) club President at Animo Jackie Robinson High School. A GSA Network alum from the class of 2011, Yordy has lived in California since he was a child and gone to school here since elementary school.  Now, Yordy is being held in detention, not allowed to return to the home he worked so hard to make safer for all LGBTQ youth.
Almost 1000 youth have signed the petition to free Yordy & other LGBTQ immigrants seeking asylum. Please join them: http://unite.gsanetwork.org/p/yordy
For 3 days in a row now, ICE has come up with bizarre excuses (“the recording system is down”, “your file cannot be found”, etc) to prevent him from resuming his life in Los Angeles and the country he has helped build. Yordy will be facing the judge again today at 1:00 pm. Please sign the petition and call 202-732-3000 to #FreeYordy.

In November 2013, Jewlyes Gutierrez, a transgender student from California, was charged with assault for defending herself against bullying at school. A year earlier, Dynasty Young in Indiana was expelled for bringing a stun gun to school after enduring months of harassment based on his sexual orientation and gender expression. These high-profile cases — and the countless others happening across the country — never should have gone so far. Today, GSA Network launched a #GSAs4Justice campaign so that your GSA can demand that restorative justice, not jail, is the FIRST approach your district uses to resolve incidents of bias-based bullying.
