Register today for our Youth Unity Summit on Friday, December 8th, 2017 at UW Milwaukee!
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.
To register, have each student and adult attending fill out our 2017 Youth Unity Summit Registration Form. Please note that registration closes on Monday, December 4th. Registration forms can be emailed to Sawyer or mailed to GSAFE at the address below. If you intend to bring registration forms day-of, please call ahead of time with a headcount and registrant information.

Arriving at the UWM Student Union
Our friends at the UWM Student Union have asked schools bringing participants by bus and van to plan to drop students off at the corner of Kenwood and Maryland near the bus stop there. This will help to ease congestion in front of the Union in the morning.
