The 5th Annual GLBTA Student Leadership Retreat is just around the corner, September 24-26. Be apart of a great opportunity to develop leadership, small group facilitation, action planing skills and explore intersecting identities and oppressions through a social justice lens. The retreat's aim is to help welcome and affirm the campus atmosphere and experience for GLBTA students. Some of the topics covered were understanding language and broader social justice definitions, myths and stereotypes of the GLBTQ community, organizing, group facilitation, identity development, oppression, power and privilege, and action planning. Students had a chance to meet, bond with, and continue relationships with everyone they met not only on their respective campuses, but also systemwide. Many students, post-retreat, became involved in various social justice initiatives, groups, events, and activities that involved issues pertaining to gender and sexuality, but also those that further examined the intersections of gender and sexuality with race, class, culture, age, ability, and all of the other social identities. This is a FREE opportunity and will bring together students interested in creating change from the Crookston, Duluth, Morris, Rochester, and Twin Cities campus.
