UCSD to host conference for queer youth of color

SAN DIEGO -- The Queer People of Color (QPOC) organization at University of California, San Diego (UCSD) will host its 12th annual high school conference on Saturday, May 25.

High school students from all over San Diego will have the opportunity to participate in a series of academic-based and social justice-based workshops at the day-long event.

This year's theme, "Out In Silence: Raising Our Resistance," is dedicated to connecting high school students, queer youth of color, and all participants to social justice issues that affect queer/LGBT youth.

There are three sessions for the workshops, separated by the different topics: academic-based, LGBT youth issues, and action (what can you do?).

Conference organizers hope that participants will collectively learn the knowledge and create the tools for youth to rise out of multiple silences and raise resistance.

Workshop proposals are still being accepted through May 15 at 7 pm. To propose a session, click HERE.
