Grantee Spotlight: Global Action Project

July 10, 2017

Global Action Project (GAP)—an Invest in Youth grantee—is an intersectional youth organizing and activism program that uses media and storytelling to help young people, specifically immigrant and TLGBQ youth, advocate for themselves and their communities. On Monday, June 26th, I attended their End of the Year Screening, where participants showcased the short films they worked on.

Thank YOU! Check out our Highlights from 2017 End of the Year Screening!

On Monday night, 300 of Global Action Project's closest friends, family and community partners, gathered to celebrate our 2017 Youth Producers under the theme "Our Resistance, Our Time, Our Sanctuary." To everyone who came out on Monday or supported G.A.P. over the course of this past year, thank you so much for uplifting the voices of these dynamic, talented and creative LGBTQ and immigrant youth leaders!

Support G.A.P.'s Spring Appeal

For 25 years, G.A.P. has been building safe and transformative spaces where youth impacted by injustice— youth of color, immigrant youth, trans youth, queer youth, Muslim youth—come together and collectively envision alternative futures, using those visions to fight the injustices in our current reality. In a time where voices of dissent are threatened, our work to expand—and protect—spaces where young people most impacted by these attacks come together to create powerful counter-narratives, feels incredibly urgent.
