Mark your calendars for BEYOND TOLERANCE 5, which will be held on December 10th from 4:30- 8:30 at Vanguard High School (317 E 67th St).
Beyond Tolerance events are designed to bring youth, educators, and community organizers together around LGBTQ issues. For this fall’s youth conference, we hope to offer a variety of workshops on a wide range of topics led by youth and adults alike. If you or the youth you work with might be interested in facilitating a workshop or tabling at the event, please read below or follow the link. If you are interested in attending but do not want to facilitate a workshop, stay tuned for more information on how to register. As always, you can write to us at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Workshop Proposals are due November 10th, 2010

We must not let our sense of civic duty to engage these critical issues begin once the school day is over—we must weave them into our teaching and learning. This resource can be best utilized online as a web resource.
