HRC Mississippi Visits Ridgeland High School GSA

by HRC staff April 25, 2016

Post submitted by: Harry Hawkins, Field Organizer HRC Mississippi

Recently, HRC Mississippi Faith Organizer Daniel Ball and I attended a meeting of Ridgeland High School’s Gay Straight Alliance (GSA). We discussed the important work that HRC Mississippi will be doing in the coming months, including our upcoming Repeal HB 1523 Rally on this Sunday, May 1, at the Governor's Mansion in Jackson. 

The meeting was also a chance for both of us to tell our stories of why we do this work.

Gay-straight alliances play a central role in facilitating safe and welcoming environments for LGBTQ students in middle and high schools across the nation. They also provide opportunities to educate straight allies on the dangers of homophobia and transphobia, and the serious implications harassment and discrimination present to LGBTQ Americans – particularly youth. 

HRC Mississippi is proud to share our work with this inspiring group of young leaders and advocates. To learn more about our work in the Magnolia state, click here.
