Week of March 12 - 18
Since 2014, SAVE has been proud to support the founding of Gay Straight Alliances at underserved schools in South Florida. Pictured above is our kickoff event at Homestead High with teacher and facilitator Aaron Bos-Lun and special guest author Erin Gruwell of Freedom Writers fame.
SAVE's GSA startup program has helped seed groups at underserved high schools like Homestead, Miami Central, Miami Edison, and Miami Northwestern. A GSA or other similar affinity and support group can be a lifeline for isolated LGBTQ+ students at underserved schools.
