Social Awareness groups at Gates


Gates is happy to offer two different clubs focused of social justice and supporting inclusion at Gates. The two groups are called GSA (Gay Straight Alliance), and TIDES Committee (Tolerenace, Inclusion, Diversity, Equality  Student committee). 


GSA- The Gay Straight Alliance  is a club open to all lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, questioning (LGBTQ) youth, AND straight allies (LGBTQA). This may include students who have relatives and friends who identify as LGBTQ+.  This club will focus on creating a safe, supportive, inclusive, environment for all students, regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity/expression.   


The GSA will meet every other week on Wednesdays at 1:00. The club will begin on Wednesday November 18th, running every other week on the following dates: 11/18, 12/2, 12/16. (further dates will be scheduled after winter break.)   If students are interested in joining they can join the google classroom for more information and the zoom meeting link. GSA Classroom code: ew5ceuz


TIDES committee- Tolerance, Inclusion, Diversity, Equality Student committee is a club open to all students focusing on diversity and inclusion in our school community. The purpose of this group is to bring people together to celebrate diversity, build an inclusive school community, and to help educate ourselves and others about what's going on in our world around social justice, racial justice, and human rights issues. The group hopes to create different opportunities for inclusion and highlighting diversity in our school and community. 


Whether you identify as a student of color, a person in the LGBTQ community, practice a different religion than most of your peers, or just want to be part of the conversation, this group is for you. Even if you simply want to sit in the back of the virtual room to listen and learn, we would be glad to have you. We hope that each student feels their voice is heard and important, but never feels pressured to speak on behalf of a specific group of people.


TIDES committee is a student run group that meets every Monday at 3:30. If you are interested in joining the club, please join the google classroom for updates and the zoom link information. TIDES google classroom code: jvcql25   (L not 1)
