GSA FORUM
Nov

9:00 AM09:00

GSA FORUM

GLSEN CENTRAL NEW JERSEY &
THE BAYARD RUSTIN CENTER FOR SOCIAL JUSTICE
are proud to present
16TH ANNUAL 

GSA FORUM
 SATURDAY 16 NOVEMBER 9AM – 4PM
GROVER MIDDLE SCHOOL
10 Southfield Rd, West Windsor Township, NJ 08550

THE FORUM BRINGS TOGETHER HIGH SCHOOL & MIDDLE SCHOOL STUDENTS, THEIR ADVISORS, ALLIES, PARENTS & SUPPORTERS FOR A DAY OF
CELEBRATION, EDUCATION, & NETWORKING.
MORE THAN 500 PARTICIPANTS ARE EXPECTED TO JOIN TOGETHER TO EXPRESS THEIR PRIDE & TO GAIN RENEWED STRENGTH FOR THEMSELVES & THEIR COMMUNITIES.

Forum workshop topics will be targeted to the needs of high school & middle school students as well as school staff members, parents & other supporters. Included in the workshops are diverse subjects such as Youth leadership, GLSEN Days of Action, Planning your Future, Knowing your Rights, Middle school GSA’s, & specific workshops for GSA advisors, all school staff, & parents. 
Certificates of attendance for educators will be available.

“The very existence of Gay Straight Alliances saves lives every day,
both literally & figuratively. Sometimes, oft-times, this is what allows some students to get up in the morning, traverse those very intimidating hallways & make it through their sometimes, oft-times, very difficult days,” espouses
Robt Seda-Schreiber, Chief Activist of the Bayard Rustin Center for Social Justice,
“GSA’s are love & love is contagious.”

“GSAs play a critical role in improving school climate for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, questioning and queer (LGBTQ) students and their allies,” explained GLSEN Central NJ board member and former GSA Advisor Sue Henderson.  “GLSEN research data show that the presence of a GSA promotes more positive experiences for LGBTQ youth, less harassment due to one’s real or perceived sexual orientation or gender identity/expression, and a greater sense of belonging in school. The GSA Forum gives everyone the opportunity to meet peers with similar interests, to learn about and discuss topics they don't normally get to address, and then to take what they’ve learned back to their schools and communities.”

Period Day Rally
Oct
19
3:00 PM15:00

Period Day Rally

OFFICIAL RSVP LINK: https://actionnetwork.org/events/new-jersey-natonal-period-day-rally/

On October 19, 2019, we will rally for NATIONAL PERIOD DAY -- elevating the issue of period poverty and demanding real change to making period products more accessible for all and ending the #TamponTax. This is an inclusive rally! Whether you menstruate or not, EVERYONE is welcome. Bring all your family and friends! Bring posters! Wear red!

It’s 2019, and yet, 1 in 4 women struggle to afford period products due to a lack of income. In the first city-wide study on period poverty, it was found that 46% of low-income women had to choose between a meal and period products. Because of the period stigma that makes menstruation a taboo topic, we don’t often think about what it’s like for a homeless or low-income menstruator to get their period, and don’t have open conversations about period health or solutions to period poverty.

We believe that it is a fundamental human right to be able to discover and reach your full potential, regardless of a natural need – and what could be more natural than menstruation? Simply put -- MENSTRUAL HYGIENE IS A RIGHT, NOT A PRIVILEGE. We are the Menstrual Movement -- fighting for equitable access to menstrual hygiene, and breaking down the stigma surrounding periods. This fight is on ALL OF US, and we must TAKE ACTION NOW. Unlike most poverty-related issues, this one is solvable.

We call for clean and healthy period products to be freely accessible in schools, shelters, and prisons, and also stand in solidarity with the 34 US states who still have a sales tax on period products considering them non-essential items.

PLEASE SHARE! There are rallies being hosted all across the US in honor of PERIOD DAY!

We especially need ORGANIZERS from marginalized communities, so please email our national team policy@period.org or niyunb@gmail.com if you’re interested in getting more involved!

The current co-hosts of the New Jersey Period Day Rally are:

We'll start out at YWCA Princeton at 12:00 pm and walk to Tigers Park with signs, and bring the issue of gender-based violence to the attention of the community! Then, we'll walk back to YWCA Princeton at 1:00 pm to meet with our co-hosts as they table in the YWCA Princeton lobby and provide information about how we can help end gender-based violence through donating, volunteering, and taking action.

Our Bayard Rustin Center for Social Justice is proud to unveil a dedicated archive honoring & celebrating the inspirational Gay People Princeton, our community's first gay rights organization.
Founded in 1972 as the Gay Alliance of Princeton, these extraordinary individuals gathered together Princeton University students, workers & faculty, local townsfolk, & the greater community to come out strongly & proudly to declare their identity, soon becoming Gay People Princeton & forging the way for all of us!
We at BRCSJ HQ are thrilled to have the honor of creating a multifaceted archive devoted to their history so it is never forgotten again.
On Friday 11 October please join us in showing respect to these fabulous trailblazers, many of whom will travel far & wide to receive much-deserved & long overdue accolades for their part in the movement!
We share this important history to inspire the future,
both equally necessary to inform & implement the now of our

Art Against Racism
Sep

to Sep 27

Art Against Racism

  • Bayard Rustin Center for Social Justice (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Multiple local venues will host Princeton’s inaugural “Art Against Racism” group exhibition and related events from September 20-30.  “Art Against Racism” is a platform to promote social justice, inclusion, equity and anti-racist community-building through the visual arts.

The juried exhibition will feature work to be exhibited at participating organizations and businesses.  Exhibition sites include The Bayard Rustin Center for Social Justice, the Arts Council of Princeton, Princeton United Methodist Church and Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Princeton.

Several events have been planned to support the exhibition including but not limited to interdenominational breakfasts between members of black, Latino and predominantly white churches, a poetry slam, a talk on reparations, and an anti-racism drag show.

The exhibition is organized by Rhinold Ponder, a local artist, Robt Seda-Schreiber, Chief Activist of the Bayard Rustin Center for Social Justice (BRCSJ) and art curator and activist Ruthann Traylor of the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Princeton. Collectively, they see this event as an essential response to the current divisive and racially polarized environment.

“Our Bayard Rustin Center for Social Justice is all at once honored and inspired to organize this event with Rhinold. Racism is so engrained in our collective consciousness, meaningful connections like this allow us to see how all our communities can come together in a creative and meaningful way to recognize and break down the institutional and foundational nature of it. The intersectional aspect of this work is the very essence of our mission and of our being of service to the people.” shared Seda-Schreiber.

“Unfortunately, due to the current environment of hatred “Art Against Racism” is very timely. It is about bringing people together to encourage others to understand how racism hurts us all both systemically and in our personal lives, It is call designed encourage anti-racist action on every level and to help worthy causes and artists in the process.” added Ponder.

“Art Against Racism” is one of several events participating in the Create Core Courage Annual Social Justice Art Events focused on bringing attention to the continuing need for social and institutional change through the arts.
Artists interested in exhibiting work in “Art Against Racism” may submit up to four images to artagainstracism@gmail.com
or find more details at https://www.createcorecourage.art/artagainstracism.html

To date the following events have been scheduled: 
On September 20, 2019, the Unitarian Universalist Church will host the Art Against Racism Opening Reception and Artists Talk.
On Sunday, September 22, several churches, including the Princeton United Methodist Church, the First Baptist Church of Princeton and the Universalist Unitarian Congregation of Princeton, will participate in interdenominational breakfasts bringing together congregants from multi-cultural churches with members of predominantly white churches. 
Local literary artists, including Ghandi GPS, will perform at a poetry event at the Arts Council of Princeton on September 27, 2019.
The Bayard Rustin Center will present “Racism Is A Drag” a performance of drag queens donating their time and talent for the cause on September 28th.

This year the funds raised by “Art Against Racism” will be donated to the Bayard Rustin Center for Social Justice.The BRCSJ is a community activist center, educational enclave and safe-space for LGBTQIA kids, intersectional families and our diverse community members. The BRCSJ HQ is located physically on 21 Wiggins St. in Princeton and virtually at www.rustincenter.org.
