The National Trans Youth Council invites you to join us in just three weeks on our third annual GSA Day for Gender Justice. For the past few months, our team has been working on our most monumental project yet, and on November 16, 2018, we are excited to launch the TRUTH Nine Point Platform!

The TRUTH nine point platform centers the social movements that our team understands to be the foundation of our liberation and calls into action the intersecting forms of resistance; our manifesto will guide our work as young trans and non-binary organizers and we offer this guide to GSA organizers worldwide.

Take part in GSA Day for Gender Justice and join us in the TRUTH Nine Point Platform launch!

There are SIX ways to take action:

TRUTH Manifesto
We are sharing the text of the manifesto with the world. It will live on our website and we invite you to share this page with community. GSA clubs can use this manifesto to guide your conversations and work as a GSA.
Manifesto Visual Art Piece
We are launching a visual art piece (that is powerful and beautiful). To capture the magic, we’re holding off on sharing this until the day of #GSADay4GJ. Once we release this, share it online on your GSA accounts and/or personal social media!
Manifesto VIDEO
We are also launch a audio/visual video of our council members reading the manifesto. For the same reasons as #2, we’re holding this until the day! This video can be used by GSA clubs to begin their meetings or share powerful content to your membership!
Petition Sign-on
Alongside this launch, our goal is to have as many folks read and support this platform. To encourage support, we are kicking off a petition on GSAs Unite where individuals can sign on to adopt the platform. For the days leading up to GSA Day, get your GSA club to sign on and adopt this manifesto. Use this form to enter you club or org name and we will add it to our website for the launch!
Host a GSADay Discussion
GSA Day wouldn’t be the same without GSAs. For the day of our campaign, we’ve prepared a discussion guide for GSA leaders to hold space and guide conversations about the TRUTH manifesto, it’s content, and parallel dialogue. Remember to take a picture of your meeting for GSA Day (even if its a few days before Nov. 16) and post online so we can share!
Selfie Campaign
Lastly, join our selfie campaign! To amp up this day, write down your favorite or most important point from the manifesto and take a selfie with your call to action! Post online with hashtags #GSADay4GJ and #OurTransTRUTH on the day of November 16. Try to get our GSA to take photos in advance to get read to post online the day of GSA Day.

FREE TDOR ART: In addition to the work TRUTH has put together, we’d like to raise up more opportunity for GSA clubs via Forward Together. Forward Together is offering *free* art for folks who use this form by November 6 to sign-up and ensure you receive the new TDOR art by November 20th. They will mail the art to the address you provide. Sign up today!

If you or your GSA club have any questions about GSA Day for Gender Justice or how to plan for this day of action, email Juniperangelica Cordova at [email protected].
