GSAFE, the nonprofit that works to create safer schools for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and questioning students of all identities in Wisconsin, held their annual Celebration of Leadership on May 30. The event was held virtually due to the COVID crisis. 

Students who received scholarships include Daniel Croake, Blue Bernstein, and Yuliana Nava. 

Gabe Javier received GSAFE’s Special Recognition for Educational Leadership award. 

SJ Hemmerich of Randall Elementary School was recognized as Educator of the Year. Mx. Hemmerich and their GSA students were among the winners of Teaching Tolerance’s #USvsHate challenge.

Throughout Teacher Appreciation Week in May, GSAFE recognized many teachers nominated for their supportive classes and mentorship through school clubs such as gay-straight or gender and sexuality alliances.
