EVENT: Expression Not Suppression 2013
ENS – Expression Not Suppression Saturday Feb 23rd
Expression Not Suppression (ENS), hosted by Gay-Straight Alliance Network and Community Link, will be held February 23rd, 2013 from 9am until 7pm at Big Red Church of Fresno, followed by a youth-only dance from 7pm until 9pm.
ENS is a conference for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, questioning, and straight ally youth dedicated to fostering safe schools and youth activism. ENS is designed to focus on giving youth organizers the tools to challenge homophobia and transphobia in schools.
This year our youth steering committee has requested that presentations focus on Creating Safe School Environments and Stopping Violence in Schools.
The aim of ENS is to provide a safe space in which students may come together to explore the multiple oppressions faced by youth, help teachers become advocates and form partnerships with LGBTQ and straight allied youth, and become armed with the tools needed to change the world! ENS participant, you will make new friends, be exposed to a wealth of valuable resources, feel empowered and supported, and have fun!
