What is the BEYOND TOLERANCE YOUTH CONFERENCE?
It’s annual conference focused on issues related to gender and sexuality organized specifically for middle and high school age youth and the adults who work with them. Youth, community and school educators, and allies gather on a Friday afternoon from 4:30- 8:30 at Vanguard high school to give and attend workshops, visit tables from community organizations, and network with one another. Pizza is served as an afternoon snack and the day closes with an open mic.
Whose Eyes Are You Looking Through?
Join bklyn boihood in a facilitated discussion that will break down the negative and/or problematic stereotypical portrayals of Black masculinity in contemporary media. We’ll consider how these images/portrayals inform our understanding of what it means to identify as trans and female-bodied masculine-of-center people and most importantly, how to consistently push back against those stereotypes and create strong, healthy self-identity.

New York Collective of Radical Educators (NYCoRE) is a group of public school educators committed to fighting for social justice in our school system and society at large, by organizing and mobilizing teachers, developing curriculum, and working with community, parent, and student organizations. We are educators who believe that education is an integral part of social change and that we must work both inside and outside the classroom because the struggle for justice does not end when the school bell rings.
