JJLA helped GLSEN produce an inaugural DC RISE UP FOR LGBTQ+ YOUTH event at Hotel Washington on March 14th, 2024 to encourage the lawmakers in our nation’s capital to protect the rights of LGBTQ+ students to learn in safety and support.

Just down the street from the White House, around 200 community members and elected officials came together for a touching program honoring the education work of Rocío Inclán and hosting an enlightening panel discussion moderated by Jonathan Capehart and featuring honoree Rocío Inclán, Imara Jones, and Wilson Cruz.

GLSEN members and their guests left the event inspired and energized, not to mention well fed!
