Gay-Straight Alliance activists have a message for California schools: you cannot keep ignoring the rights and the health needs of LGBT students. If you do, you will be held accountable.
GSA Network delivers that message every spring, when youth leaders travel to Sacramento to speak to their legislators about bills that directly affect their access to a safe learning environment.
