GSA Conferences

GSAFE hosts two day-long conferences every school year, one in the spring and one in the fall.  These conferences are open to middle school and high school students, as well as to GSA advisors and other school professionals who are supporting GSAs and other clubs working toward justice for all students.  These conferences provide an opportunity for students and school professionals across Wisconsin to network and obtain skills that they can take back to their schools.
