Connecting Our Roots

An update on FIERCE's National Program

In 2009, FIERCE launched our National Program with a LGBTQ Youth of Color Organizing Summit in Dallas, TX and the release of Coming Out, Stepping Up, which highlighted the needs of LGBTQ youth—as identified by LGBTQ youth.  The report spoke to the voices and issues largely left unheard in the mainstream LGBT agenda and provided solutions and recommendations on how to tackle these issues through LGBTQ youth-led organizing. 



FIERCE’s national program is centered around supporting LGBTQ youth organizing as a strategy for creating change and developing LGBTQ youth leaders in broader social justice movements.   This year, we have made important strides in this work.
