GSA activists from across the country come together every summer at the National Gathering. The goal of the National Gathering is to support the GSA movement across the country and expand it to include even more states, cities and towns.

The National Gathering is hosted by the National Association of GSA Networks. It provides an opportunity for National Association members to collaborate, share stories, exchange resources, discuss best practices, and build the GSA movement.

This year the National Gathering will be August 2nd – August 5th in Loiusville, Kentucky.

And VERMONT will be there!
