Fighting for affordable & accessible higher education for all Oregonians since 1975.

OSERA Symposium 2020

Saturday, May 23rd, 2020 at Southern Oregon University

The goal of this unique symposium is to politicize LGBTQ+ college students around issues affecting them and increase their ability to advocate for an affordable, quality, and safe college education. This conference will prioritize the needs, voices, and issues of LGBTQ+ students while challenging societal norms around gender identity and sexual orientation.  We want to provide an opportunity to queer and trans students to come together and learn in ways that are often not provided on individual campuses due to lack of support and resources.
