Listen to Clinton Rosette Middle School, DeKalb, IL's Gay/ Straight Alliance (GSA) members and advisor describe their Alliance journey. This GSA won the Alliance's "Ally of the Year" award in 2013 due to their dedicated efforts to educate, engage with, and support LGBTQ and allied students in their school. The Alliance is proud to host over 180 such GSA's all over the state.

In the wake of the election results, many of us are wrestling with unanswered questions and complex emotions. These can be difficult and confusing to talk about especially with our young people with whom we want to provide a safe space, encourage the expression of divergent views and model respectful discourse. But how do we go about doing that?! The Education and Training Committee has compiled some resources to help you! While not an exhaustive list, it is our hope they will provide a foundation from which to foster growth and healing.
