SafeSpace, Morehouse College’s, gay-straight alliance and student advocacy organization, is proud to announce that it will be presenting at the 25th National Conference on LGBT Equality: Creating Change. SafeSpace has a goal of empowering a movement that is geared towards student advocacy, self-authenticity, and the affirmation of all marginalized groups, particularly LGBTQ. In order to facilitate this mission, the leaders of SafeSpace thought that it would be beneficial to present their model of student advocacy at the Creating Change Conference that will be hosted in Atlanta, Georgia from January 23-27, 2013, in order to encourage and validate other student organizations. The session entitled Not a Club but a Movement will be presented under the conference track: College Campus Issues and Organizing Students. Kenneth Pass, President of SafeSpace, along with Ja’Mal Lewis, SafeSpace’s Public Relations Director, and Tre’vell Anderson, a SafeSpace Leader, will be using this time to engage participants in a session that will empower and teach them how to effectively influence their campus administration, faculty, staff, and students within spaces that are usually conservative in regards to sexually marginalized groups. Among the topics that the presenters will discuss are: asset-oriented models of advocacy, administrative partnerships, academic and scholarship programming, and organizational visions. SafeSpace does this all with the goal of igniting student leaders and organizers to join in the liberation and acknowledgement of intersectionality, that Morehouse College has taken on. The idea is that SafeSpace wants to take gay-straight alliances and related organizations to new and innovative levels in terms of advocacy. SafeSpace wants to shift the mindsets and paradigms of student leaders and organizers to see their work and leadership as more than just clubs but as movements that can positively affect their campus environments.
